Bogus solar panel workers target elderly men

The "workmen" asked for £3000 to repair solar panels

BOGUS workmen tried to con a pensioner out of £3000 by offering to fix solar panels.

The man from Lockerbie was approached today (wed).

After they were unable to provide identification he sent them away.

In another incident police were alerted by bank staff after elderly man attempted to withdraw a large sum of money from his account, to pay workmen who were repairing his solar panels.

Dumfries and Galloway police are now warning of the dangers of dealing with cold calling workmen whom they don’t know and ask that should anyone call seeking to do repair work to solar panels then the local police are contacted through 0845 600 5701.
