: SCAM WARNING – TRADESMEN KNOCKING ON THE DOOR

by 2aik4
One of the ladies who receives my scam warnings, shared her own embarrassing experience recently with tradesman knocking on her door. She fell foul to his charm, regarding cleaning her guttering. Sadly, she parted with considerable amount of money for just an hours work. The gentleman, term use loosely, also went onto the roof and lifted ridge tile. He reported the roof was in very poor state and needed great deal of work, which would cost many thousands of pounds. He left not having convinced the lady. The business card, with his mobile number on, for Natural Roofing Solutionsis not responding to the lady’s call to return to refix the ridge tile levered off. 
The elderly lady lives alone and her sons never available to provide support. The gutter cleaning had been on her mind for considerable time, so when this person turned up, she was swayed into accepting his offer to carry out the work. Its lesson learned and hope others may heed the warning about tradesmen knocking on your door, out of the blue.
Take care everyone and stay alert to this people.
