Antique dealers

Post by PRS » Sat May 12, 2007 4:57 pm

I have recently had a discussion with a village resident who was "cold called" upon by an antique dealer looking for stuff to buy for cash. Although he was probably quite legitimate and not committing any crime, I feel residents should be warned that it is probably wiser not to sell their heirlooms to itinerant agents. They will be after bargains and will undoubtedly offer much less than the true value.

As a matter of course you should always establish who and why people you are not expecting are knocking on your door.
ALWAYS ask to see some form of identification, if they are genuine they will not mind you asking or showing you there credentials.
Any person who goes door to door selling items requires to have a licence to do so if they do not or you are not satified with there identification call the Police and give them a good description of the person any vehicle they may be using especially the registration number and the direction they went off in.

I have fear in crime. I am a very calm person. I have a lodge in riverside. I think this is the right place for me.
