scammers with an elderly person

We have received reports from residents in Snodland, Larkfield and Tonbridge about a roofing scam.

What happens
  • A brick is thrown onto the residents roof causing damage to tiles
  • A criminal knocks on the door offering to repair the damage
What to do
  • NEVER agree to work from someone who knocks on your door uninvited
  • Don’t allow anyone to pressure you into having work done
  • If you ask them to leave and they don’t, contact the police on 999
  • Use reputable traders who are members of the KCC Trading Standards approved trader scheme, run in partnership with Checkatrade
  • If your roof is damaged get a minimum of 3 quotes in writing
Warn vulnerable family members, friends and neighbours.
