Watchdogs have warned people to beware of doorstep cold callers trying to sell household cleaning and Christmas products.
The warning by the Trading Standards officers at Norfolk County Council follows recent incidents in the Drayton area.
At one home they claimed they were “ex-offenders” selling items “as part of a rehab scheme”.
They were carrying rucksacks containing household cleaning items, Christmas cards and wrapping paper. The householder declined the offer and reported the incident.
A spokesman for Trading Standards said: “ Our advice is never deal with anyone who cold calls at your property offering to sell something. It is possible these sellers will continue to move onto other locations in Norfolk.”
