Dealing with door to door salespeople
Have you ever been offered home improvement services, such as gardening or roofing services, by a door-to-door salesperson? While many legitimate traders use door-to-door selling, we remind residents to be vigilant as scammers also use this approach.
If you think you've spotted a scam, report it to the SCAMwatch ACCC Infocentre on 1300 795 995 or visit the Scam Watch website, where you can also learn more about protecting yourself from a scam.
You can also contact Consumer Affairs Victoria on 1300 55 81 81, or contact the local police if you believe you have been the victim of fraud.
