A Glendale senior was recently scammed by a roofer for $30,000. A bank employee became suspicious when she came back to withdraw more cash and convinced her it was a scam and called the police.
In response to this blast, a northern Maspeth resident, who is knowledgeable about these scams, sent us the comment below. Please be alert and don't fall for these scams!!
"Someone tried this scam on me a couple weeks ago on Grand Ave. He claimed he met me when working on my neighbors roof and noticed I needed work and he would inspect it for free. I almost started believing him but figured it out and walked away. He had an Irish accent."
