Doorstep seller warning:
Camden residents are being warned about door-to-door fish salesmen
who are visiting residents and trying to persuade them to buy fish on
Residents are presented with fish that is largely unlabelled, not as described and some of it unfit to eat.
Doorstep sellers also tend not to offer customers cancellation rights or provide a receipt to allow them to seek a refund if they are not satisfied with the goods. It is sometimes difficult to contact them again once the sale has been made.
This type of scam involving door to door fish sales is a national problem. We advise that the best place to buy fish is from a reputable fishmonger, or at an established shop or stall.
Anyone who has been approached by fish sellers in this manner should contact the Citizens Advice consumer service on on 03454 04 05 06.
