Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Hello resident,
                       please see a current scam warning supplied by Halton Trading Standards.
Warning: Doorstep Mattress Sellers Operating In Halton
Unfortunately, we have received information that mattresses are being sold out of a white van in the Borough. Legitimate traders do not sell mattresses out of the back of vans during a global pandemic! Do not buy these mattresses; protect yourself and your family from the potential spreading of Coronavirus. It is highly likely that these mattresses are poor quality and do not meeting the required flammability standards set under UK law.  
There are currently restrictions on businesses selling products due to the Coronavirus. These restrictions are in place to protect the public and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of Halton Trading Standards specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.

Hope this helps?
