Beware: Rogue Builders in Kew
From our Police Safer Neighbourhood Team:
I just wanted to update you quickly and ask that you advise your neighbours around current scam/rogue builders in Kew:
During these difficult times we have received recent reports of ‘rogue builders’ preying on our residents (often elderly) who are at home offering to carry out repairs such as roofing, tiling, brick work, etc. for heavily inflated prices. Today, we also believe that one company going door-to-door on Beechwood Avenue are copying the name of a legitimate business in an attempt to con residents. Please be mindful of any builders/workmen knocking on your door and always seek genuine quotes before agreeing to work. Drop us an email if you’ve received a visit you are concerned about. I’ll be patrolling Beechwood and the Kew Green end of the ward tomorrow to keep an eye out.
