Trading Standards Warning

Trading Standards Officers from Comhairle nan Eilean Siar are aware of doorstep collectors currently operating in Lewis who may be portraying to be charity collectors. Legitimate charity collectors should not be confused with potential doorstep scams.

“If you would prefer not to have such callers at your doorstep, we remind residents that Doorstoppers signage from the Doorstoppers Campaign can be printed off from the Comhairle’s website.”
