How to Avoid the Rip-off Trader!
Tameside Trading Standards has launched their Buy With Confidence approved trader scheme to support legitimate businesses and to protect the residents of Tameside from the rogue trader. The scheme has over 200 businesses/traders on the list but is expected to increase very quickly to become a comprehensive directory of reliable, trusted traders. All members are independently checked by staff from Trading Standards for compliance with the letter and spirit of the law and will benefit from positive publicity.
Trading Standards will put consumers in touch with approved traders who have agreed to provide a trustworthy, high standard of customer service. The scheme will help to give customers peace of mind, particularly older and vulnerable consumers who need to know who they can trust and will protect them from becoming victims in their own homes.
