Protect yourself from travelling conmen
Look out for travelling conmen who may turn up at your door unexpectedly. Travelling conmen are deceptive and misleading people pretending to be legitimate tradespeople.
Be suspicious of people who:
- turn up at our door unexpectedly offering special one-off or today only deals
- ask for cash up front
- offer to drive you to the bank to get money for payment
- pressure you into accepting their offer
- Disappear and leave the job unfinished or of a poor standard.
If you believe you have been approached by a travelling conman visit NSW Fair Trading or call the conman hotline on 1300 133 408.
