People in Gedling borough are being warned following reports of rogue traders flogging fake mattresses in the area.
Trading Standards say they have received reports of uninvited callers going door to door offering the mattresses for sale.
These are marketed as being luxury mattresses offered at a “bargain” price. In reality they are cheap mattresses of poor quality. Officers also say they have concerns that they may not meet fire safety standards.
Trading Standards strongly advise residents never to buy at the door from a ‘cold caller’.
If you are approached at your door by anyone offering mattresses for sale, or are suspicious about any doorstep caller, please report this to us via the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0345 04 05 06. You may also call the Citizens Advice Consumer Service for advice on goods which you are looking to purchase.
