Rogue Traders Operating Near Inverurie

Police are encouraging residents in rural communities to remain vigilant following reports of rogue trader activity in the Inverurie area.

North East Division Crime Reduction Officer Constable Mike Urquhart said:

"Rogue Traders usually cold-call, offering to make repairs or carry out work on your house, garden or driveway. In reality they charge inflated prices for shoddy or completely unnecessary work. We do not recommend dealing with cold-callers for property maintenance and repairs to your ome and garden.

"Be on your guard if someone turns up unexpectedly. Ask yourself if your premises or garden really require work to be carried out and remember if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Be vigilant for vulnerable neighbours who may fall foul of these criminals. Donít feel pressurised into agreeing immediately to work being carried out and never pay cash up front."
