NYP Community Messaging – Bogus Cold Callers

northyorkshire police

A message from the North Yorkshire Police Community messaging service:-

Police and Trading Standards have been made aware of residents in the Malton area being cold called on the telephone offering surveys for home burglar alarm systems. The company claims their alarms are linked to the police and fire service. This is false as police and fire services do not monitor home alarm systems. Please remember that any quotes for this type of work must by law include a 14 day cooling off period explaining your right to cancel.

If you have any concerns please contact the police on 101 or Trading Standards on 03454 04 05 06
