An alert has been issued after after a woman claimed she was scammed by two males offering driveway jet washes in Redhill.
The Neighbourhood Alert issued yesterday (September 28) warned residents to now be on their guard.
Two males knocked on woman’s door and offered to level, jet-wash and re-sand and seal her block-paving driveway.
It said the job wasn’t completed as agreed, her car was damaged during the work and they overcharged her – only accepting cash.
Bob Vaughan-Newton from Neighbourhood Watch in Gedling North said: “The woman felt intimidated, scammed and ultimately foolish but thankfully not too upset
“She said it was a lesson learned.
“I’m sure they have moved on to their next vulnerable target but please ensure that any vulnerable neighbours are aware.
