The Trading Standards Institute has received complaints about fraudsters posing as Green Deal assessors, scamming money from consumers.
Each Green Deal Provider is required to be registered. Once registered, both providers and assessors must follow a code of practice, which is designed to ensure that they operate fairly and transparently, protecting consumers against aggressive selling techniques and traders that mislead.
There is also clear process for dealing with complaints, which includes a designated independent Green Deal Ombudsman.
Here at GMEAS we will never contact you out of the blue. If someone does be very wary. Always check the credentials of the individuals and /or ring the Energy Saving Advice Service (0300 123 1234) if you have any doubts about whether the trader is genuine.
