Ye Olde Window Cleaning Scam is Back
Yup folks, that old “I’m in the area cleaning windows, mate, gimme a tenner and I’ll do yours while I’m about it” wheeze is back – only this time he’s gone posh.
Those of us in East Greenwich are well aware of this particular cowboy, but I haven’t heard of him operating in the leafy streets of West Greenwich before. But Jolyon has just sent me this:
“I was stupidly conned yesterday by a guy calling round to offer to clean the windows. Chatted for a while, said he cleaned neighbours houses etc.. I dont know why, but I paid him £10 up front to come back to clean them today. Alas my windows are still dirty and the man is £10 richer! ”
You have been warned, folks.
