Householders are being advised not to buy products from doorstep salesman following reports of a cold caller visiting Suffolk homes and offering garden furniture for sale.
Suffolk Trading Standards said reports had been made by residents of at least three villages in the west of the county.
Officials warned people to be cautious of doorstep salesmen – especially those offering deals too good to be true.
Suffolk Trading Standards, the consumer protection department of Suffolk County Council, said a man had last been reported calling door-to-door in Cowlinge and Great Bradley, near Stradishall, and in Beyton, near Bury St Edmunds.
It said the salesman was offering teak garden furniture, using claims like “last one” and “great price” because they had not been able to sell the items at garden shows.
