Suffolk Trading Standards warns of cold caller selling garden furniture in West Suffolk

Householders are being advised not to buy products from doorstep salesman following reports of a cold caller visiting West Suffolk homes offering garden furniture for sale.

Suffolk Trading Standards, the consumer protection department of Suffolk County Council, said a man had last been reported calling door-to-door in Cowlinge, Beyton and in the Stradishall area. The salesman was offering teak garden furniture, using claims such as “last one” and “great price” because they had not been able to sell the items at garden shows.
