Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Bogus/Rogue Traders

Over the weekend in the Springhill area of Nailsworth it was reported that 3 males attended an address offering to clean the gutters of the property.  Whilst there they told the property owner that there were loose roof tiles and offered to fix them as well for a cost.  Unfortunately the owner agreed to this and paid a considerable amount.  Two males were described as aged between 34-40 and the other late teen – early twenties, they left a postcard sized card “Like New” offering damp, guttering and cleaning services.

Please see the attached for information on protecting yourselves against these types of incidents.
