Rogue traders are operating in Shipton Under Wychwood targeting the elderly and vulnerable. We have had a report where an elderly person was visited by males offering to cut back trees and general ground work in her garden, they were paid some of the money upfront on that day and returned today to carry out the work which was very minimal. They then sent the victim to the post office to withdraw more money.
Please can we keep an eye on our elderly and vulnerable neighbours and relatives, speak to the neighbour if work is being carried out and call the police on 101 number if you believe your neighbour or elderly relative may be a victim of Rogue Traders.
