Campaign to stop travelling con men

9 November 2012

The Deputy Commissioner for Consumer Affairs Dini Soulio has reminded South Australians to remain vigilant this summer and keep an eye out for people posing as tradespeople who offer great deals but fail to deliver.

The growth in travelling con men scams involving bitumen laying, roof painting and back of truck deals on electrical goods has led to development of a national strategy to raise public awareness and stop the scammers in their tracks.
