Charlton Kings resident scammed out of large sum of money

Charlton Kings resident scammed out of large sum of money

Local police are warning residents to be wary of people offering services door-to-door and unannounced after a local man was scammed out of £1500 for a 10 minute gardening job.

The elderly gentleman was approached by two men on the morning of Thursday 3rd September. Although a sum of £100 was agreed for the gardening work, the men then demanded £1500.

The victim travelled to town and withdrew cash, which he handed over to the two men. They worked on his driveway for 10 minutes before departing in what is to be believed a white van which was parked nearby in the area of Maple Drive/Willow Road. More »

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to report this online by completing a crime report form on the Gloucestershire police website. Please use the reference of 151 of 4 September here:

Please make your elderly or vulnerable friends, relatives and neighbours aware of this type of scam. Be cautious and vigilant when people offer services and items for sale door-to-door. They may pressure you into making quick decisions for work which often isn't necessary in the first place.

Remember to take time to consider your options and never pay upfront for goods or services you have not received and question whether they are a legitimate company. Legitimate builders do not call door to door. If you feel pressured by any cold caller, say no and close the door. » Less
