Doorstep criminal in Faversham offering house painting services

We have received reports of a doorstep criminal in Faversham offering house painting services.

The criminal offers to drive residents to the bank to withdraw cash but fails to return to do the work.

One resident lost £350 to this criminal.

Don’t feel pressured into buying goods or services and never pay cash to someone you have just met on your doorstep.

Please look out for neighbours and report any suspicious doorstep callers to us.

If you require work done to your home get a number of quotes. Use a reputable company who has been recommended by family or friends or use a Kent County Council approved trader via Checkatrade.
