Rogue trader victim helped with repairs
A TENDRING business came to the rescue after an elderly man was conned by rogue traders.
Trevor Back, from Bentley Plastics and Construction, wanted to help after he heard about a Clacton man in his 80s who was left with shoddy and incomplete work on his home.
Trevor, based in Great Bentley, agreed to repair the damage done at no cost after he was touched by the case.
Trevor, who is an approved business under the Trading Standards’ Buy with Confidence scheme, said: “When I hear about elderly and vulnerable people being ripped off in this way it always makes me angry and when I heard about this particular case I wanted to do something to help.”
