Ok, I first thought that this was Gloucester in the UK when I first read about this chimney sweep scam but as I have readers from as far field as the USA (according to my stats on Google Analytics) I thought that I would report this interesting story:

Police are warning residents about alleged scam artists whom they say claim to work for Sweepys Chimney Sweep and offer to do work for 50% less than what it would really cost if they pay on the same day and this scammers are targeting mostly elderly residents in a classic bait and switch scheme. So, we are lucky that we don't have this kind of thing in the UK.
