Police are warning of false roofer scams in Luxembourg after around 20 cases occurred in the south of the country.

The scams, not reported before in the Grand Duchy, but are common in some other countries, take place by residents opening their front doors to 'workmen' claiming that they have noticed damage on the roof of the house and offer to fix it.

Once the fraudsters gain entry to the property, valuables are stolen while the so-called “work” is carried out.

Police are therefore warning home owners to be vigilant and report any suspicious visitors.
