Cruel conman tricks OAP twice

First published in News

A conman twice stole £40 from a pensioner in Colden Common.

He pretended to be a window cleaner but only cleaned some windows and said he would return to finish the job, but never did.

The incident happened last Saturday morning at Sunningdale Mobile Home Park.

Later that afternoon the same offender returned and told the victim that the supports on his mobile home were rusty and would need to be repaired or replaced. He told the victim he would do it for £300, which was dropped down to £60 and finally to £40. The victim handed over the £40 believing the offender had the supports in his vehicle.

Having taken the money the offender disappeared, driving off in his vehicle.

The man police want to speak to is white, between 35-45 years old, with short dark hair, clean shaven and wearing a black suit, white shirt with a black tie and knee length brown boots.

Call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
