Dirty windows, rotten scoundrels

Nish sent us this scam alert:

On March 25th, I was the victim of a window cleaning scam on Tyrwhitt Road. We were caught off-guard and persuaded to part with £10 to a man on the doorstep who said he represented a company who usually does all the buildings on the road.

Stupidly we paid upfront and of course realise now it was a complete scam. We wanted to share this with other Brockley residents as we would hate to think an elderly or more vulnerable person could be conned in this way. The man is very convincing.
