POLICE in Moray are appealing for information after reports of a group of males selling items door-to-door without a licence in the rural Elgin and Forres areas.
It is suspected these males may been offering household goods for sale.
PS Graeme Forbes, Forres CPT said: "Peddling goods door to door without a licence is a criminal offence. There are criteria that must be met before being granted a licence, including that those persons are of good character.
"I would like to remind homeowners sellers working in a genuine capacity will have their identification which they should carry on them at all times, and they should expect members of the public to ask to see it.
"I would encourage any members of the public who have concerns or suspicions about salespeople at their door to please let the police know as soon as possible by calling 101."
Anyone with information about these males is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting CF0036990220. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
