Yesterday my elderly parents came back from shopping and noticed a short man wearing a woolly hat and
boots knocking on doors on the Dovehouse estate. He eventually knocked on their
door and offered to power wash the front drive for only £5 per metre. He told
them he would show them what he could do so then the garage was opened so he
could access the water supply. Wellington
He proceeded to clean the whole drive without permission and demanded £350 in payment. He was offered a cheque but refused abruptly and said that he would take my mother to the hole in the wall. They refused to pay £350 so he told them he would let them have it for £300.
They paid him just to get rid of him as they were frightened of what he could do. They rummaged around the house for £300 cash.
Just wanted to make everyone aware of this scam, do not let him show you what he does.
Police have been informed.
