Would you like to buy a mattress?

Reports have been received of people going door-to-door in the Mansfield area offering mattresses for sale.

These are marketed as being luxury mattresses being offered at a bargain price.

But in reality they are cheap mattresses of very poor quality. There are also concerns that they may not meet fire safety standards.

Trading Standards strongly advise against buying anything from a cold caller because you risk overpaying for what ultimately turns out to be shoddy goods or substandard services.

If you are approached at your door by anyone offering mattresses for sale, or are suspicious about any doorstep caller please report this via the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0345 04 05 06.
