A WILLINGDON woman has issued a warning after an incident yesterday afternoon.
She said: “BE AWARE a guy came to my door earlier with a large black sports bag, very pushy wanting me to buy random things.
He had followed it with a story of struggling.
He had a northern accent mid to late 20’s.
Police are aware.”
They are the so called Nottingham Knockers. They are so-named because the original scammers hailed from Nottingham and would come knocking door-to-door to trade their wares, the scam has spread across the country, sparking a number of police alerts.
