Trading Standards have received reports of them being in the Felixstowe and East Ipswich area. Desc. - 3 men in white coats, operating from a white van. Trading Standards regularly receive calls from home owners who have been duped or bullied into spending large amounts of money on poor quality and misdescribed fish, sometimes not even fit for consumption. These traders travel nationally, cold calling consumers’ homes selling the fish. This is often misdescribed, mislabelled or unlabelled, overpriced and sometimes underweight. They are targeting vulnerable consumers and using high pressure sales techniques. Trading Standards urge caution if consumers do decided to buy on their doorsteps — make sure you get fish that is accurately described, reasonable price and that you don’t feel bullied into making quick decisions on purchasing.
