Age Cymru has welcomed the jail sentence imposed on a north Wales roofer who conned older people out of thousands of pounds.
He even ripped tiles off the roof of a 90-year-old’s house then offered to mend it. The Daily Post story illustrates why Age Cymru’s campaign Scams and Swindles is so important.
Campaigns co-ordinator Gerry Keighley said stiff sentences were the only way to reflect how serious these crimes against vulnerable older people were.
“It also shows why extending No Cold Call Zones and making them legally enforceable would give so much more protection to older people than they have at present.”
