A Portland woman's been ripped off by a con artist who got into her home by claiming to offer a carpet cleaning service.
He didn't do the job properly, and after he left she found that a significant amount of money had gone missing.
Dorset Police are warning us to be extra vigilant when we have work done in our homes.
They'd also like to hear from anyone who's been the victim of a similar incident.
