Police are giving warning after a number of reports of bogus workmen targeting residential properties in both the Walkden and Boothstown areas.
They are reportedly approaching householders offering to carry out refurbishment or replacement of driveways.
They are described as white males ages around their late 20's - early thirties, 1 man was of medium build, wearing dark clothing and curly hair under a bob hat, he was also seen to be smoking roll ups. The other is described as also being medium build and wearing short pants and trainers. There are reports that they have been seen driving a white transit van around the areas.
Both are suspected by police of carrying out fraud and false representation.
This is by far the first time that fraudsters have targeted Salford in such a way, last year a couple from Weaste were duped out of money by someone claiming to work for Salix Homes.
Residents are advised that if approached, they decline any offers of work and report the incident immediately to GMP via 101 or using their online chat services.
