Lame window cleaning scam - Goose Green area

A couple of days ago a badly printed piece of paper was put through our letter box stating something along the lines of "Windows cleaned - will return for payment next week".
Funny, and opportunistic as we had not asked for anyone to clean our windows, and they had not been touched.
A few minutes ago a white guy in his early 50s rang our bell and said he was here to "take payment for the windows done". I told him that we hadn't asked for this, and they hadn't been cleaned, that even if they had been he wouldn't get a penny (should have offered him a chocolate coated pretzel instead).
He then said "the lady who lives downstairs asked". Funny as ours is a house, not flats and my wife hates having her peace disturbed by dirtbags like this.
Anyway, he wandered off muttering to himself. Just thought I'd post a heads up in case you know any elderly or vulnerable people in the area who might get caught by this very old and pathetic con.
