Potters Bar residents warned over bogus leaflets
RESIDENTS in Potters Bar are being warned to exercise caution when leaflets are pushed through their doors.
A spokeswoman for Hertsmere Borough Council said: “Most of us receive leaflets through our door offering various services but if you think an offer is too good to be true, it normally is.”
Principal licensing officer Phil Andrews added: “We all get leaflets through our doors and the majority are genuine but, on occasion, the distributors do not have the correct licences.
“For instance, anyone collecting money or items door-to-door needs to have a permit from the council.”
Permits are also needed to collect money on the street.
