Default Beware of Gardener

Seems like the gardener guy has comitted theft, he agreed to do some work
and was paid in advance, yet work was never done. See the police, or am I
missing somehting here ?


You are very close. It is actually "obtaining property by deception",
contrary to Section 15 Theft Act 1968. This is very much a police matter
rather than trading standards.
