NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/06/2017

An elderly person has been preyed upon by scammers posing as house cleaners in the Coromandel.

Police have said that three men in a white ute that had ladders on it turned up at an address in Coromandel, offering to clean the homeowner's windows and spouting for about $280.

Despite saying no, the victim was talked into paying for work that hadn't been done.

The victim felt pressure and confused, a police spokeswoman said.
