Message sent on behalf of Trading Standards
Northamptonshire County Councils Trading Standards Service are warning residents to beware of doorstep fish sellers. Last week homes were called at in the south of the county where residents were duped into buying fish that was incorrectly described and near the end of its use by date. They were also misled as to the weight of the fish supplied and the unit price leading to them also being overcharged.
Trading Standards advice is not to purchase goods on the doorstep and to only purchase goods from reputable sellers.
If you see any suspicious doorstep callers please report the details to the Doorstep crime Action Network (DAN) on 0345 23 07 702
