Rogue traders could target Basildon police fear

POLICE fear rogue traders could be looking to target pensioners living in Basildon.

So far the cowboy builders have only struck in London, but police fear they could be on the mov to Basildon.

Typically the con artists have been knocking at homes in the capital claiming there is a serious problem with the building and charging thousands to put it right. They have repeatedly targeted pensioners.

Officers in Basildon are now warning pensioners in the borough not to fally prey to the same con.
