Bogus window cleaner warning
Oct 4 2008 by Katie Campling, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
NEWSOME residents are being warned about a bogus window cleaner touring the area.
Police are urging people not to hand over money to anyone but their regular window cleaner, after an Edale Avenue resident was targeted in an apparent con.
The victim answered the door to a man who asked for money, claiming to have cleaned the windows.
The resident handed over £10 and the man rode off on a bicycle at 6.50pm on Thursday.
A neighbour then pointed out to the resident that his windows had not been cleaned and that the visitor was not the regular window cleaner for the area.
