Message from Trading Standards
Please see below message from Trading Standards about a number of reports of Rogue Traders offering tool sharpening services. Even though this message is mainly for business members but in case they start targeting local households.
Leicestershire County Council Trading Standards Service have received a number of reports this week from businesses who have been approached by rogue traders offering tool sharpening service. Issues include claims of a free trial before being charged extortionate amounts and becoming aggressive when payment is withheld. There are also concerns over the standard of work carried out.
Advice would be to not engage in these services and to call 101 should you feel a threat to your personal safety or property. Call Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 040506 if you are concerned you may have been a victim.
