Door-knocking conmen are out there, so it's important that residents know what to look out for to avoid being scammed.

How to spot a travelling conman
Council reminds residents to be alert and suspicious of people who arrive at your door, unexpectedly, offering to:
• paint the house
• work on your garden or cut trees
• resurface driveways
• fix your roof
• offer cheap deals using words like 'for today only'
• ask for cash up front
• offer to drive you to the bank to get money to pay for the job
• pressure you to accept their offer
• say they can do the job now as another nearby has just cancelled.
