WATCH | Police release CCTV footage following roofing scam
Police have released CCTV vision (see below) as they appeal for information in relation to a roofing scam in Sydney’s south-west.
At about 4pm on Friday 30 November, four men attended a home in Milperra claiming to be roof tilers, informing the two residents their roof needed repairing.
After the residents paid the men part of the money for the repairs, they became suspicious and told the men they didn’t want the repairs done and to leave.
The men refused to give the money back and left the house.
Police have been told when the men left, a woman noticed the remainder of the money missing from her wallet.
