Two men have been arrested and charged in connection with bogus workmen incidents in various locations in Fife.
The men, aged 37 and 58, are due to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court in due course.
The incidents happened over several weeks from Sunday April 26 to Saturday May 16, at addresses in Kinghorn, Kelty, and Lochgelly.
Detective Constable Neil Gribbons, of Dunfermline CID, said: “This type of activity often affects vulnerable and older people and we will continue to target the professional con artists who are responsible.
“People can take some simple but effective steps to protect themselves if someone turns up on their doorstep offering to undertake work, including asking for identification, not making on the spot decisions and never handing over money on the doorstep.
“Anyone with concerns regarding this type of activity should contact Police Scotland on 101.”
The arrests coincided with Police Scotland’s current#ShutOutScammers campaign, held in partnership with Trading Standards Scotland, which aims to highlight how the public can spot a rogue trader or bogus caller on their doorstep.
