In recent weeks, there have been a number of companies using high pressure selling techniques to sell mobility products, such as mobility scooters, to elderly and vulnerable people. These companies have been known to give the impression they are from social or health care agencies and do not properly inform buyers about their consumer rights when purchasing mobility products.
Their sales practices have been, and will continue to be investigated by the Scambuster Trading Standards Teams. Please be reminded that as with all cold callers, use your door chain and check identification and do not buy from doorstep sellers unless you know who you are dealing with and have been advised by social or health services of their visit.
If you are suspicious about any such doorstep sellers please report this to Derbyshire Police 0345 123 33 33 or Derbyshire Trading Standards Consumer Direct 0845 404 0506
