Homeowners in Fulwood are being warned about a potential scam.


Trading Standards have issued a warning about a blue Ford Transit.

The van, without a logo, sees a group of men offering jet washing and driveway/roof cleaning services.

It is operating within a no cold calling zone – which covers a number of areas of Fulwood including a fairly new one in Cadley.

A spokesman for Trading Standards said: “We do not know anything adverse about these traders, apart from the fact that they have door knocked in a No Cold Calling Zone (which is not illegal, but is undesirable).

“Residents are advised never to deal with cold callers, and always obtain full quotes and receipts for all jobs.”

There’s a scam-busting Facebook page – Scambusting Stan – which Preston residents are urged to sign up to for the latest warnings.
