Following the Government’s announcement of the Green Homes Grant Scheme the GGF has received reports of rogue companies trying to scam homeowners.
The reports include the following:
- Scammers are calling people by phone, email and door-to-door claiming the scheme is now operational and that homeowners will get £5k off the price of their glazing if they sign up for new windows and doors.
- Scammers are using the name of the GGF to add credibility to their claims.
