Door to Door selling

Alert message sent 01/03/2020 16:46:00

Information sent on behalf of Humberside Police

Suspicious circumstances reported in your area

Concerns have been raised by several residents in your area about a male going door to door asking for information regarding the energy providers people use.

Whilst selling door to door isn't an offence there are strict guidelines which all companies must adhere to.

It is unknown whether this male is genuine or not but from what has been reported his approach leaves a lot to be desired and could probably benefit from some training.  He has also been knocking on doors after dark which for a lot of people is inexcusable.  If in doubt about anyone knocking at your door, DO NOT answer it and report any suspicious activity via 101.

This link provides details of the guidelines companies must follow.
