Havering Council has issued a scam alert to residents after bogus workmen have tried to con residents when roadworks have been taking place in their street.
The Scammers have claimed that:
Drains blocked causing problems for the street
Garden walls that are unsafe and will fall into the street causing potential injury to passers by
Paving outside of house being renewed and that they were from the council, the homeowner had problems with tree, that equipment would have to be hired to do work, and that this had to be done before paving could be replaced.
Workmen from Havering Council or utility companies will NEVER ask for money from residents while work is taking place.
