Had a 'door knocker' this afternoon. He handed me a card saying he was deaf and proceeded to offer pencil 'drawings' to buy. The prices were on the back of the card. The man appeared to be friendly. However, this is a 'heads up' alert.

He was round at ours in Prenton on Friday. Drawings were bloody awful - fingers down the throat chocolate box puppies, kittens and such.

had the Big issue woman from Liscard trying this last year when I was out shopping in Liverpool or Birkenhead can't remember which now, little card and all, funny how quick she moved when I pointed out who she was and she doesn't talk like she does when she's selling the big issue in Liscard to boot, she used to come in Home Bargains to buy big bags of sweets for lunch

We had a similar guy come into the shop with a "deaf card" and a small leaflet with the alphabet "signed" on it.

£1 for each, if it's a scam I won't be losing any sleep over a quid, but it does show how low some people will stoop.

me too, my sign is right next to the bell so they knock on the door and pretend they havnt seen the sign!!! they make my blood boil as sometimes through ill health it can take me ages and a lot of pain to reach the front door thinking it maybe family to then find a sky/virgin/cancer/nspcc/gas/electric person wanting my money and because i live in a terrace house with no path or gate they are always in my road, it shouldn't be allowed
