A BOGUS window cleaner is being sought by police.

Swindon police Inspector Bill Giles said the officers had received a complaint about a man in the Okus Road area who told a resident on Wednesday that he had taken over rounds for the previous window cleaner. Although the bogus cleaner got into the woman’s house nothing appears to have been stolen. However, yesterday the original cleaner turned up at the house and said that he had heard about the scam from his other customers.

It appears the bogus cleaner is seeking funds for jobs yet to be completed from unsuspecting residents.

Anyone with information should call police on 0845 4087000 or Crimestoppers on 0800555111.
