Beware Landscapers!

Posted on March 5, 2013 at 0:19 2 Comments

Its that time of year where the worms who think up the scams are starting to wake up as have had a call this afternoon about advertising the the police magazine. I always ask them to send me a copy of past magazine for reference, they then just hang up. So beware dont get caught out of your hard earned money.
