Carpet-cleaning scam targets Lunenburg seniors

December 30, 2011

LUNENBURG - RCMP say seniors are the target of a scam circulating in Lunenburg.

Since Christmas, residents at two apartment buildings in the town have been approached by an unregistered cleaning company.

Police say those behind the scam offer to steam clean carpets and upholstery for a set price.

However, once the service has been completed, the supplier attempts to charge more for extra services or work they haven’t carried out. From the Chronicle Herald.
