Three men from the Nottinghamshire area have recently been arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation after an incident which took place in the Bourne area of Lincolnshire last month (August). The victim, a 76 year old lady, had been approached by three men at her home who offered to carry out work including guttering, plastering and rendering for which they were paid nearly £1,000. The work was of a poor standard and no receipts or details were left with the lady.  The men have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.  PLEASE DON’T AGREE TO HAVE ANY WORK CARRIED OUT BY ANYONE WHO VISITS YOU UNEXPECTEDLY AS THEY MAY BE BOGUS OR TRY TO OVERCHARGE YOU. IF YOU NEED WORK DOING TRY TO USE SOMEONE WHO IS RECOMMENDED AND REPUTABLE
