Denbighshire County Council is warning residents in the county to beware of traders claiming to sell ‘left-over’ tarmac on behalf of the authority.
The council has received calls from worried residents in rural properties near Ruthin who have received cold callers offering to sell ‘left over tarmac’ from resurfacing works and the traders claims they are working for the county council.
However, the council says this is not the case.
Councillor Tony Thomas, Cabinet Lead Member for Housing, Regulation and the Environment, said: “This scam has been reported previously in some other parts of the country and Denbighshire County Council is emphasising that this offer is not real.
“The council would never authorise traders to sell any left over tarmac door to door – that is not our working practice. We would advise anyone approached to say no and to report the police."
