Beware of tarmacing contractors

Cornwall Trading Standards are warning of gangs offering driveway tarmacing and other surfacing works to residents in the North Cornwall area - particularly St Kew and the surrounding villages.
It is alleged that the gangs are cold calling on properties and are implying that they are working for ‘the County’ or that they are in some way connected with the Council’s own surfacing contractor, CORMAC.
A trader or business who attempts to sell goods or services at a consumer’s home must provide a 7 day cooling-off period in writing. Failing to provide such information can be a criminal offence and can make the contract unenforceable. 
If you have any concerns about cold calling activities or doorstep sellers in your area,  please contact the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 08454 04 05 06.
