NOTTINGHAM KNOCKERS

Nottingham Knockers have been reported in the Telford area, most recently in Leegomery.

They are doorstep callers who target areas offering small household products for sale. These callers may claim to be ex-convicts attempting to mend their ways, however they are not part of any recognised rehabilitation scheme.

It has been reported that they may try to ask to enter you home to get a good look at the inside while trying to sell small household supplies like cleaning products. Prices may vary with some people saying they have paid much higher prices then others for the same products.

Many of these doorstep callers may have what they call ID however many have no photo ID on them, so it is advised not to deal with these individuals. 

Please warn your neighbours, particularly elderly or vulnerable neighbours, not to open the door to strangers or buy or sell on the doorstep. Some doorstep callers may offer poor quality goods at inflated prices and if a caller is not genuine, they may be gathering information for future crime.

Please keep in mind that if cold callers don't get any sales in your area, they are less likely to return.

If they are refusing to leave your property please call 101 or 999 for an officer to come and move them on.
