Beware of aggressive workmen
11:12am Thursday 29th August 2013 in Your Letters
THIS is a warning. 'Gentlemen' will be calling on you to offer a range of services including resurfacing/ paving/clearing your drive, fixing your roof, cleaning your gutters, pruning your trees, clearing your drains etc.
The job will be really cheap. There’ll be a full guarantee on the work. They won’t charge VAT and they’ll accept a cheque.
Immediately the job is ‘finished’, they will plead (or threaten) for a cash payment.
“Can’t you get it from an ATM? – I'm going on holiday tomorrow and need the cash right away.”
There will be a nasty stand-off and a ferocious argument until you agree to their demands.
The work they’ve done will be sub-standard and in some cases dangerous.
Watch out and don’t fall for it. These are vicious people and you could be their next victims.
Once Bitten, Urmston
