Rogue traders warning for Stourbridge residents

From http://www.stourbridgenews.co.uk/

STOURBRIDGE residents are being warned to watch out for high pressure sales people targeting vulnerable people in the area.

Dudley Council’s adult social care team and trading standards officers are urging people to be wary of representatives of any firms claiming to have connections to social services.

Trading watchdogs say shady firms, including a group known as ABM Mobility, may be at work in the region.

Officers say dodgy trading techniques include missing appointments and sales people pressurising customers to buy large pieces of equipment such as stairlifts and beds.
