There was a rogue trader incident in Northwood, Chippenham yesterday (05/07/2016). A man claiming to be from GreenSquare Housing cut the 88 year old victim’s hedges and demanded money, following her into her home and taking a large amount of cash.
If anyone comes to your door who you believe to be a rogue trader or is aggressive towards you demanding money you have not agreed to pay call us immediately on 101 or 999. Or if you are concerned for a neighbour call us. A video produced by the Council gives good advice and information about Rogue Traders.
We have also just had reports of a female and young males selling knives door to door in Longstone Road, Chippenham. If they come to your door please call 101 to report.
