A bogus roofer or roofers are targeting elderly people in York.
North Yorkshire Police said there had been at least three incidents so far this month of a man calling at the homes of people in the city and on occasion taking money from residents.
The first incident happened on Tuesday, when a man called at the home of woman in her 80s in Lowfields Drive in Acomb. He said his name was Paul and that he had completed £420 worth of roof repairs and needed paying.
The victim handed him £20, and the man, described as in his thirties and about six feet tall, said he would be back for the rest of the money, before leaving in a grey car with another passenger.
