Toronto Police Warn Seniors about Repair Scam
Men are targeting seniors by offering fraudulent home repairs.
2 0

Toronto Police are warning seniors to beware of people going door to door offering to perform home repairs after a senior was duped out of an unknown amount of money.

Police say they were called to a home in the Victoria Park Avenue and St. Clair Avenue East area on January 13th after one or two men were reportedly approaching homes occupied by seniors and convincing them that their roofs needed repairs. 

After allegedly completing the work, the men would then accompany the victim to a bank machine to withdraw money for payment.  However police believe that no actual repairs were completed. 

The first suspect is described as white, 5’10”, 170 lbs, 35-40 years old with a black do-rag on his head.

The second suspect is white, 5’7”, with a very heavy build.

Toronto Police are warning people to be extra cautious if approached for unsolicited home repairs and to contact police if they are suspicious about anyone offering such services.
