Good post Adrian. It's always good to know when something like this is happening and I particularly urge the elderly to be aware.

Last Sunday I had a phone call from someone saying they weren't selling anything and were ringing on behalf of Notts County Council. I can't remember exactly what it was they claimed to be phoning for, I think it was to do with insulation actually, anyway, I knew it was something that NCC have nothing at all to do with so I was on my guard. I asked which department of NCC they were from and they hung up immediately.

They were just unlucky to have phoned someone who has worked for NCC and knows what NCC do and don't deal with but not many people would be quite as aware and might have fallen for it. I absolutely despise these con people. If they have to use dishonest, underhand or bullying tactics, their product is obviously not good enough to sell.
