Roofless Tactics

Beware of what would appear to be a roofing scam operating in the Worcester Park area. Blog reader Glen explains: 

"The doorbell rang and a man wearing a sweatshirt with a logo on it asked if he could rest his ladder in our front path tomorrow when he was repairing our neighbour's roof. 

We said this wasn't a problem. He then told us that we had 2 loose tiles and would we like him to replace them while he was up there. He wanted £40 to get the tiles. I told him I had no cash so he said he would come back tomorrow evening and sort out invoices then.

I then went and checked with my neighbour who has not booked any work so it is a complete scam.
We then saw them working their way down Colborne Way."
