Nottingham Knockers Active in Suffolk

From Trading Standards.

Nottingham Knockers spotted in Needham Market!

Named after a scam originating in Nottingham, young people travel across the UK targeting a town at a time. They knock at doors and claim to be ex-convicts attempting to mend their ways, before trying to sell the householder everyday household products at very high prices.We always advise residents to refrain from buying at the doorstep and not to buckle to pressure from salespeople offering supposedly one-off ‘buy it now’ low prices.You can report sightings to us via 03454 04 05 06 or Suffolk Police on 101

They have also been reported in Ipswich and the Woodbridge area.

They state they are working for Helping Hands and are on a rehabilitation programme from Prison. This is a scam.
