Warwickshire residents have reported receiving unexpected knocks on the door from people selling fish products. These are not local traders with regular rounds. The callers often begin by asking whether the householder has room in their freezer before attempting to sell them the fish.
The products have often been stored in unrefrigerated areas, may not be properly described and may weigh less than is claimed.
Don’t buy goods and services from unexpected doorstep callers.
