Trading standards say anyone who believes they have been a victim of rogue trading, or has concerns about a friend, relative or neighbour, should contact Essex County Council Trading Standards via the national consumer advice helpline on 08454 040506.
The arrests today demonstrate that we will not tolerate the unacceptable and abhorrent behaviour of those who prey on the most vulnerable members of our community. It is through vigilant work by Trading Standards officers and Essex Police that means we can identify rogue trading, act upon evidence and hopefully stamp out this activity across Essex.”
