Police and trading standards officers are hunting a pair of suspected rogue tree surgeons after they targeted homes in Faversham.
They were alerted at 11am on Wednesday after receiving a phone call from a concerned resident who had been quoted £360 just to prune trees.
The dodgy traders are believed to be in their mid 30s, tanned, shaven headed and with broad traveller accents, and one of the men had a stutter.
They were clad in orange workwear, hard hats, visors and ear defenders, and were seen driving a plain white van with a cage on the back.
They were last seen driving in Preston Avenue heading towards Bramley Avenue on Wednesday. Residents have been asked to be vigilant.
Advice to householders is to say no to uninvited callers, cash payments, unnecessary repairs, and to say ‘no’ politely but firmly.
