Beware Landscapers!

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.

    I have had the same people phoning saying i have reserved a space in the magazine for HNS workers and how would i like to pay the invoice of £250 Plus Vat, as i had not ordered any ad with the company i was not going to pay a penny and when i asked them prove this the guy on the phone said i ordered a space with them in November and he would get the call played back and send me a copy.
    That was the last i heard about the matter and that was over a year ago now, so watch out for the Scam Call, i think they are from Liverpool.

"Nature doesn't like straight lines - so almost certainly man has taken a hand here somewhere.  As has been mentioned, an old base? Looking at the shape, with the apex, did a shed lie there for some time and the preservative leach into the gound?"
