They've been cold calling offering services in exchange for cash.

Police are urging people to beware after reports of traders in vans offering to power wash drives and gutters in the town.

A spokesperson for Weymouth and Portland Police said:

"We have received several calls about two vans that are signwritten advertising Cleaning Services. 

"One is red and one is blue and they are both Citroen relay vans and do not have UK registration plates. 

"They are cold calling people offering to power wash their drives and gutters in exchange for cash payments. 

"Do not buy from unsolicited door stop traders. Please make your family and friends aware that these scams are taking place across Dorset, including the Weymouth area."
