Scam

Alert message sent 12/11/2018 17:17:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police


Please be aware that two males in a silver Transit Van registration number CE57 OPW are visiting properties in the area and telling people that they have a problem with their roof and quoting a price for repairs and then saying that as a special offer for today they will do the work for half that amount.  Work was carried out on a property in Nettleham and a sum of money was charged which we believe was excessive for the amount of work done and the time taken to do the work.
These males are quite aggressive to house owners when they say that they do not want work carrying out.
One male was described as in his 30's, scruffy appearance, slim built, ginger hair and an Irish accent.  The other male was older and told the householder that it was his father.

If you have any information regarding this matter or see this vehicle in your area please contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 and quote incident 201 of 12/11/2018.

Please do not have any work carried out by persons who are cold calling.  Have work done by professional persons and come recommended by people that you trust.
