I WAS watching Cowboy Decorators not long ago and then I became a victim.

I shouldn’t have but I paid him £2,700 cash in hand to have my flat, which is a one bedroom flat, decorated. It took him seven months to do and even after that time it was still not finished properly.

I could not relax in my own home as there were tools and mess everywhere. Even the police were shocked at what he did.

Those sort pretend to be your friends and rip you off without conscience. Something should be done about them.

I’d be interested to know if anyone else has had my experience.
