A cold call is the act of making an unrequested or uninvited visit to your home. Most cold callers intend to sell you goods or services.
Although the majority of cold callers are genuine, there are a minority who commit ‘doorstep crime’.
It is often difficult to tell whether the person is genuine, a rogue trader offering repairs or improvements, or a bogus caller trying to get into your home.
