Be careful of Rogue Traders operating nearby

Cardiff residents are being urged to be alert to rogue traders after an elderly couple handed over thousands of pounds to a man to carry out remedial work on their roof.

On 3rd January residents in the Cyncoed area, were visited at their home by men offering to carry out work on their roof. The couple were then pressured into driving to their bank, in order to withdraw monies to pay them for the work.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

If you have information which you think may be relevant please contact 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Advice for residents:
