Warning as Nottingham Knockers seen selling items in Evesham

Evesham Editorial 25th Oct, 2022   0

EVESHAM residents have been warned to be on their guard for cold callers going door to door selling items – so called ‘Nottingham Knockers’.

These people may often offer household cleaning products for sale from rucksacks or suitcases.

Resident are urged to be vigilant, do not purchase anything and never hand over cash on your doorstep.

If you feel threatened, close the door and contact police. Always ensure your property is fully secure.

The items offered are often of low quality and advertised at inflated prices.

The ‘sales pitches’ can also be part of a wider operation to identify burglary targets.

Those involved may claim to be part of rehabilitation schemes and could produce ID cards – these are entirely false and have no legal bearing.

Always dial 999 in an emergency.
