Police warn of fake handyman

Kawartha Lakes police are reminding residents to be cautious when allowing strangers onto your property; this comes after police say a man posing as a handyman offered to clean the eavestroughs of a Lindsay home.

At some point, the man asked to use the washroom and once the man left it was discovered that jewelry and medication were missing from the woman's home. 

Police are providing some tips on how to prevent yourself from becoming a victim: consider asking to review the person's certification documents before hiring them to perform work.

 Don’t feel pressured to make a quick decision about purchasing a service and remember that it’s your home, only allow access to people who you trust.
