HOUSEHOLDERS in Wiltshire are falling victim to a window cleaning scam.

Tricksters have called at homes in Swindon and Chippenham offering to clean windows but demanding payment up front.

Although they provide receipts they fail to carry out the job and contact details on the receipts are false.

Police spokeswoman Claire Usher said: "We are appealing for anyone who believes they have been a victim of this situation and has not yet contacted police to do so."

Anybody with information should call 0845 4087000.
