POLICE have issued a warning after borough residents have been conned by scammers offering driveway work.
The conmen offer very low quotes to start with but then raise the price when the job starts.
Often the work, which has been done in the Erewash area in recent weeks, is unnecessary and of a poor quality, police have said.
A spokesman for the force said: “Reputable companies do not usually advertise for business by calling at your home uninvited and will not visit unless you ask them to.
“They will also explain your consumer rights which rogue trader will not do.”
Anybody who has been approached or has entered into a contract should call Citizen’s Advice on 08454 04 0506
