Rogue Trader pleads guilty to ripping off 94 year old lady


Zachary O’Connor, 33, of Lancaster appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today admitting two charges of Fraud and two charges of engaging as a trader in a commercial practice which was aggressive.

His offending occurred in South Cumbria in 2018 when he visited his victim, a 93 year old vulnerable lady who lives alone, telling her she needed work doing on her roof. She was told it would cost £2,300 which later increased to £4000. The victim did not agree to the work being done, however O’Connor proceeded anyway. Some of the work was carried out to a very poor standard and the rest left incomplete. A concerned neighbour alerted Trading Standards and the Police.

O’Connor is well known to the service having been prosecuted by the team in 2010 for similar offences & receiving a custodial sentence.

He will be sentenced on 6th February with the Judge indicating it was highly likely that he would be going to jail.
