Delivery Scam in Sherwood

06/09/2010
Please be aware that in the last few days we have had two reports of a scam involving the delivery of a package for a neighbour that requires payment.

The unsuspecting victim, pays for the delivery in good faith only to find out when they pass the parcel on that it contains worthless junk and the neighbour knows nothing about it.

The Victim received a call beforehand from a person claiming to be a solicitor who politely requested that the victim receive and pay a taxi driver for the urgent package as the neighbour may not be available. The amounts paid where in excess of £50 each time.

Please be aware of this scam and be cautious, we all need good neighbours but must be careful that this is not taken advantage of in Sherwood.
