TWO women, believed to Portuguese, approached members of the public trying to sell items of jewellery on Saturday .
The incident occurred near the car park at the rear of business premises on King Street at around 4.15pm. Both women then left the area in a black Audi bearing foreign plates.
Norfolk County Council's trading standards officers have requested that residents never agree to have work done, or buy goods from, someone that calls unannounced at their door, or approaches them on the street.
A spokesman said: “Often such traders don't provide full names, trading addresses or contact telephone numbers, resulting in it being virtually impossible to trace them if there are any problems with the work or goods. It is all too often the case. Such traders often ask for cash upfront, and don't offer the entitled seven day cancellation rights.”
