Police Warning – rise in ‘rogue trader’ offences across Sussex
An elderly Chichester resident has been one of the latest victims of a spate of doorstep thefts including rogue traders, a crime which doubled across Sussex during July.
The 76 year old man was approached during July by a visitor suggesting that work was needed on his house. He left a ‘flyer’ leaflet offering tree and hedge trimming and any interior and exterior work, but with just a mobile number and email, and no landline number or actual address.
The resident handed over a total of £45,000 for work which began but was never continued and the man who started the work and who said that a further £25,000 would be needed, cannot currently be contacted.
