Residents warned over doorstep cookware con

Denbighshire residents are being warned to be on their guard against doorstep callers offering to sell cookware and cutlery.

Residents of Corwen who have been subject to the cold calling by the trader were told that they had been to a trade fair and wanted to sell the rest of their goods before returning home in the south of the country. 

The goods which appear well presented and packaged are labelled ‘St Moritz’ and are belived to be counterfeit copies.

Residents have also been told they are Swiss made when, in fact, they are made in China.

Ian Millington, of Denbighshire Trading Standards, said: "It appears this is an ongoing issue across the country and we understand that the callers will even allow people to pay by credit card with a card reader and asks for the amount to be paid in euros.

"We understand that there are cases where consumers have paid as much as £1,500 for goods when the true value will be considerably less. 

"Reputable traders do not trade in this way and if you are offered such goods, please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 08454 04 05 06 or if the trader is still in your area phone North Wales Police on 101.”
