Scam Warning – Free Crime Prevention Check
Residents are warned to be on the look-out for telesales people offering free crime prevention checks
You might have been recently cold called by a representative from Apex Direct Promotions Ltd acting on behalf of an unnamed property inspectors and offering a free exterior wall inspection.
They are specifically looking for older properties (194os / 50s) and people who want to hear about the report.
I did a quick check on the web and unfortunately I have to report that they have featured on BBC Watchdog and been reported for trading standards for strong arm sales tactics targeted at older / vulnerable people.
Our advice is to avoid them.
If you are concerned about the exterior state of your building best to get 2-3 quotes from reputable companies registered with a governing body such as the Federation of Master Builders.
You have been warned!
