Fraudster Warning

Cllr Metin Huseyin

Beware of a fraudsters operating in Bookham. This flyer refers to Joe’s Roofing but we are also lead to believe that”Reg’s Gutters” are the same people. An older Bookham resident was conned out of £1500 for two hours work on his roof that wasn’t done. Be very careful when answering your door to unknown trades people.
