Rogue Trader Warning

Alert message sent 09/01/2020 14:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


ROOFING SCAM: Please be aware.


On 06/01/20 an elderly resident in Chesham was approached by a cold caller offering to clean their gutters. The Rogue traders then removed tiles and mortar, claiming it to be old damage and the resident was quoted around £4000 to repair.

Please be vigilant of any cold callers. Rogue Traders will play on your fears and make you feel that you need to take immediate action to stop later larger bills.

If you do need work carried out seek recommendations through friends or family. Trading Standards recommend reviewing Checkatrade.com so you can see reviews from other customers.
