Got a sticker but they just keep on knocking? This is rare, but we’ve heard of a few isolated cases. Don’t let them get away with it!

If a salesperson has ignored your Do Not Knock sticker, report it to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission using their online consumer complaint form.  Alternatively, you can complain by calling the ACCC Infoline on 1300 302 502.

We also want to hear your stories – email

Please note: Religious visitors, politicians and charities aren’t legally required to respect your sticker, so we can’t take complaints about them – click here for more information.
