A case in Windsor everyone needs to be aware of – this is the second time I have reported this particular scam !!
A man walks into a shop and says he manages a newsagents, which is closing down. He therefore has some cigarettes and alcohol, he is willing to sell very cheaply. Several people place orders and get the cash – which they then hand over. The man takes the money and disappears !!!
