Lincolnshire Police issue warning over possible air conditioning scam
Scam involves person claiming to work for “Sustainable Homes” and offering air conditioning quotes
Police in Lincolnshire have issued a warning over an air conditioning scam that’s happening throughout the country. The scam is believed to involve somebody claiming to work for “Sustainable Homes” and giving out quotes for air conditioning units.
A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Constabulary said that a person calling themselves Rick Elliott was telephoning members of the public requesting an appointment to discuss and quote for a new air conditioning unit. Once at the property, he used glossy literature to trick and convince unsuspecting victims into paying a £1000 deposit for a unit costing £5,000.
“Even though the client uses his right to cancel the contract within the cooling off period, the cheque has still been cashed. We have been unable to contact the person from the details given in the brochure and literature.” said a Lincolnshire officer.
The Lincolnshire force do not think that this person has anything to do with the company of the same name, “Sustainable Homes”, which is based in Surrey.
If you do, or have already been contacted by this company, or by someone called ‘Rick Elliott’, please call the police on 101 and report the incident immediately, quoting incident number 237 from April 9th – DO NOT give them an order or a deposit!
