Subject: Police Notice - EEC Home security - DO NOT LET THEM IN - check your neighbours

We have heard from a number of residents in the EN5 area that they are being targeted by a hard sales company selling home security.

The police and trading standards have issued a warning about a company called EEC Home Security, after a number of our co-ordinators contacted them about this company:

The police have now carried out checks on the company and found that it is currently being investigated by trading standards.

This company, which has been featured on a “watchdog” type TV programme, uses hard sales and generally targets the elderly and vulnerable. Please see Ofcom Broadcast Bulletin from page 14 onwards.

Pleased call the Local Police Team on their mobile number if you have a visit or call by someone from this company: 07887 633 343. Please also call Trading Standards on 01209 720 333.

There have been some sellers at the door recently. They all need a licence and the police say that householders are entitled to ask to see the licence of the caller and to take down details whether or not they intend to buy anything.
