Been affected by cowboy traders?

Date: (19/06/2012)


Clive Holland is back with a fourth series of BBC One’s popular Cowboy Trap and he wants to hear about your building problems.

Presenter Clive and his team are filming throughout the UK looking for people whose lives and properties are currently in a state of chaos or disruption thanks to ‘cowboy’ workmen. Once the damage from work – or lack of it - is assessed, his team attempt to rectify the problems.

Clive Holland said: “The series has really hit a chord with viewers and there are still builders out there behaving improperly and causing people anxiety and stress as a result.

“We’re looking for more stories from people who have been victim of bad workmanship that for example hasn’t passed basic building standards or work that has never been completed or botched with builders refusing to return and remedy the bad workmanship; or people who have paid money up front to the builder who hasn’t finished the job and walked off leaving the owner out of pocket.

“In previous series we’ve heard from vulnerable people who builders have taken advantage of. I want to keep raising awareness of the pit falls out there and help viewers protect themselves.”
