Householders are being warned about a group of people operating across the area following a series of unwanted house calls.
Suffolk Trading Standards has issued a warning to residents about the group, who have been attempting to sell household items in Kessingland, near Lowestoft.
The so-called 'Nottingham Knockers' were going door to door in Kessingland on Thursday, May 20.
They knock at doors and claim to be ex-convicts attempting to mend their ways, before trying to sell the householder everyday household products at very high prices.
A post on the Suffolk Trading Standards Facebook page said: "We’ve had reports that Nottingham Knockers have been calling at properties in and around Kessingland.
You may also want to watch:
"They may still be in the area or could have moved on elsewhere in the county.
"If you are approached at the door and are not expecting a caller, our advice is not to answer.
