Local residents have been told to be aware of what appears to be a two-man hoax team working out of a white van in the area after an attempt was made to scam an elderly Heald Green woman out of £2,000.
The men, wearing yellow high visibility vests, approached the woman on the morning of October 5th explaining that they had spotted a fault on her roof which they would fix for her for just £10. However, on ‘inspecting’ the roof, they then told her that more extensive repair work was required and attempted to accompany her to her bank to withdraw £2,000.
The Police were called and the men made off without taking any money. A similar report was made in the Cheadle Hulme area close to The Pointing Dog pub.
The men were driving a white Citroen Berlingo van, with ‘North West Roofing Contractors’ on the side.
