Scam alert - rogue traders in the Markfield and Ibstock area

Posted: Wed, 23 Jun 2021 14:21 by Dawn Roache

Trading Standards has received reports of traders in the Markfield and Ibstock area of the county cold calling residents offering roofing and drive way work.

Whilst you may have received a 'good price' and been advised that work can start straight away, be on guard. Traders often working in this way can over charge, prices increase and the work is often substandard.

They may provide you with some form of paperwork, but is their address correct, can you get hold of them afterwards if you have any issues? Remember, rogue traders do not want to be contacted after they have your money. More »

Any agreement for work between you and a trader at your home that is over the value of £42 requires the trader to give you certain information including your cancellation rights. They should not then start the work within 14 days unless they have express permission from you to do so, or if the work is an emergency.

The advice is to obtain a number of quotes, not to agree to anything there and then and never to pay in cash. If you're not sure, don't open the door.

For emergencies please call 999. For further free advice and guidance or to report a matter, please contact 0808 223 1133 » Less

A message from Dean and Smedley

To protect our staff we are only allowing 3 patients in at a time

Please wait outside until a slot becomes available

Thank you

Before you wait to enter;

  • Allow enough time for prescriptions to be completed; 3-4 days rather than the 2-3 days due to unprecedented volumes and delays from wholesalers. Unless prescriptions are urgent there will be a delay, so please ring to check they are here to avoid disappointment.
  • Shop stock is running very low, so please ring to see if we have the items you require. We are struggling with paracetamol tablets & liquid, hand washes & sanitisers, disinfectants & thermometers.
  • Our preference is that all payments are on card to reduce money contact, so please try your best.
  • We ask others in the community to help us to cope with delivery demands due to self-isolation with prescription collections. We will however need a consent form to be completed each time.
  • Finally, we are working as hard as we can during exceptional circumstances so would appreciate you treat our staff with the courtesy and patience you would expect yourselves.

Thank you for your understanding and support

Will all customers to try to use card payments please. This the safest way to reduce transfer of the virus, not just at the chemist but at all retailers. Thank You.
