Free more powerful 'No Cold Callers' sign - Just print and display!

37
Found 30th May 2012
Moneysavingexpert.com (MSE) have in conjunction with the Trading Standards Institute come up with a much better "No Cold Callers" sign for displaying on windows and doors.

The sign points out to unwanted visitors that it is a criminal offence to knock under the Consumer Trading Regulations 2008 (apparently, this is untested, but it's a QC's opinion). They've now added this to their sign, so if they knock when they shouldn't, there's no argument they didn't know. You can resize the sign to make it A5 (shrink to printable area/muliple pages).

Release the hounds.



Or the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark they shoot bees at you.
Bit over-the-top!

Now that would be a good waste of chocolate on unwanted visitors unless you obviously had loads to shed(!)

Surely not! Unless you prefer to send out the clowns.... ;*)
Hope you have a full yellow colour cartridge in your printer for this one!

Still voted HOT because I think it's a great idea... thinking about wearing one when I'm walking down the high street.
Well this is just cold ;).

It does remind me of a bee with all the yellow and black, hence ShaunnyBwoy's suggestion! :*)
can I stick this on my phone?
After having two cold callers in the space of 5 minutes I put one of the old MSE cold caller notices up. Works a treat and only had one person knock.

Only so many times I could say NO I don't want my drive cleaned, relaid or converted in tarmac....
I just keep a copy of watch tower to hand and invite them in for a read before they can try selling anything......non of them have taken me up on the offer yet . As for cold callers on the phone I just tell them I charge £50 per hour or part there of, for my time,and if they would like to continue the conversation then just deposit the money into my paypal account and I will be happy to listen....again no takers
As for junk mail......save it up until you get one with a pre paid reply envolope and just stuff it in there and send it off for them to read/reply to
just tell them your a burglar and you dont have the time to talk to them as your emptying the house
I tell double-glazing salesmen that I'm only there to... Measure-up for double-glazing.
went to local library and printed there andd laminated for £2, worth it though
I alway invite callers in to talk about our Lord Satan.
Hey, could this work on Jehovah's witnesses-I've had 3 this week alone! Usually, when I'm changing baby's nappy, having a shower, napping ...
I just put a sign on the door:

If you're selling anything including religion please don't knock as a kick in the nuts/**** often offends.

No calls - sorted!
HOW RUDE!!!!!!!!!!!
As for ever multiplying restaurants I am contemplating:

"Put a leaflet through my letterbox and I will never eat in your restaurant again"
Thanks much better than my handwritten !!!!
just touch yourself while they talk to you.. it makes them feel uncomfortable and they just go..always works! :P
No cold calling is a bit generic. Many people who post a "no cold callers" sign still donate to charity calls or appreciate religious calls but don't want people selling them things. That's why charities and religions may still call. If you don't want them too, be specific on your sign and they won't (they are there to help not annoy you and usually respect a "specific" sign)
Try saying no thank you]...it works for me (_;)

If only the world was full of people as polite as that.
To be fair, we've tried the "no thank you" routine but we get the same company coming back week after week with the line "We're not selling anything but can we have your mobile number so we can call you?" and they seem very upset and dismayed when I say no!

You're most welcome! In the past, I would have lots of Jehovah's Witnesses turn up even with their kids pestering me so this helps a lot(!) I have a Yale electronic doorbell with combined digital camera which also takes a photo of all knockers(!)

The worst offenders are the takeaways, dodgy "donate us your clothes etc" companies masquerading as charities and Betterware catalogue women with all their rubbish(!) Betterware tops the list as being worse than the JWs because they can't even read polite notices saying, "I did not even ask for this catalogue so please do not post through my letterbox anymore!"

Yes, as long as it doesn't cover up the keys and or (touch)screen(!) ;*)
For the love of God, my eyes! It burns! Sure is eye-catching X)

You don't have to give them their catalogues back - I found this stops them pretty quickly! (Unsolicited mailings become the property of the recipient and is theirs to dispose of.)

Where can I get a doorbell that takes pictures of Knockers, is it even legal? What if they have moobs instead, does it just tazer them?
