Another resident falls victim to bogus salesmen, this time in Shotton
A second Deeside resident has fallen victim to bogus salesmen hawking household products ‘door to door’
The men clearly have their sights set on older more vulnerable members of the community.
This time a resident in Shotton obviously unaware of the men’s intentions, handed over a debit card and pin number as method of payment for goods they had purchased.
The men did not return with the card and it appears a number of unauthorised transactions were made using the victim’s card.
Another male returned later and asked for further payment!
This latest incident follows one in Connah’s Quay towards the end of August, that time two men visited an address claiming to work for a charity, they sold £50 of cleaning chemicals to an elderly person.
Police are advising residents to be vigilant and never provide anyone with bank details or any personal information unless certain they are genuine.
Never hand over your debit/credit card.
If identification is produced remember Identification cards may NOT be genuine.
Always confirm authenticity with the service provider using a telephone number obtained from a trusted source, not from a number provided by the cold caller, and not from a number obtained from the ID card.
If unsure, don’t answer the door.
