PLEASE SEE BELOW AN ALERT FROM KCC'S PUBLIC PROTECTION ABOUT LOCAL SCAMS:

 

We have received reports about a doorstep criminal active in Larkfield and Ditton areas.
 
What happens

  • A small man with an Irish accent is cold calling residents and before any work is agreed, he starts ripping up driveways or working on gardens.
  • We've received reports of people being intimidated by this criminal. 
  • One resident was also driven to the bank to withdraw cash.

What to do

  • NEVER agree to work from someone who knocks on your door uninvited
  • Don't allow anyone to pressure you into having work done
  • If you ask them to leave and they don't, contact the police on 999
  • Use reputable traders who are members of the KCC Trading Standards approved trader scheme, run in partnership with Checkatrade
  • Get a minimum of 3 quotes in writing

Please warn vulnerable family members, friends and neighbours.
