Evesham Editorial 17th Jan, 2017   0

POLICE have issued a warning after reports the notorious cold caller group, dubbed the ‘Nottingham Knockers’, were seen in Evesham.

It’s the second such sighting of the group in the town in a matter of months after the cold callers were seen going door-to-door on Tuesday (January 10).

The group are known for using persistent and pressurising sales tactics for cleaning products.

Police are urging residents not to part with any money for products they don’t need, or products of poor quality, if one of the sellers knocks on their door.




Residents are also being advised to use precautionary measures such as a door chain and to ignore callers if they are unsure who it may be.

To sell on the doorstep a valid pedlars certificate is required, not just ID with the sellers photo on.


Anyone who receives a knock at the door from the ‘Nottingham Knockers’ is urged not to answer it and instead call West Mercia Police on 101.
