No, this isn't a moan about the BBC programme, but about a van full of pikeys who tried to swindle my mum out of £1700 this afternoon !! despite all the warnings, tv programmes etc she was taken in by some blokes who were working on her neighbours garage (turns out they just knocked on her door and convinced her that her garage roof was full of asbestos!!) they then told my mum that if her roof wasn't treated it would be leaking by the end of the summer... she's 76 and walked to the bank to draw out £1500... they even told her to go back and get the other £200 !!! luckily she said no at this point and then told my sister.... who rang me and we bombed it round there .. well, as much as you can 'bomb it' at 5.30 during the rush hour... the cunts were still on the bloody roof!!! and she'd already handed over the £1500!! I hate to say it, but why are they so gullible ? my poor old mum, she's got three of us who do anything for her and she said she just didn't think.... she even made them tea and gave them cake !!! Luckily our threats to call the police must have had some impact cos while I was on the phone to the police one of them came back, in a taxi, and gave back £1000 !! still, they made £1250 in the space of a couple of hours (her neighbour had stumped up £750 for the 'asbestos' roof) I'm still bloody fuming 5 hours later.. the police said that as she'd 'engaged in a business transaction' it wasn't a crime.... I even gave them the registration number of their van.... oh well, she's safe and wasn't physically hurt... it just makes my blood boil to think these pricks are praying on old vulnerable people.... I was so angry I was shaking!!! more wine please.....

What about deception?

You just cant pursue this kind of thing through a small claims court - how do you nail them?

Covertly have the Police place a 'tacker' on their van - and nail them each day as they're about to hit their next victim :twisted:

If they did the bastards would be claiming compo for infringement of their civil liberties - they are total scum and should be assigned to the bottom of an acid bath.
