NEXT:  The car park Scam in a supermarket Car Park in Sunningdale.  I have been asked to circulate this by our Smarter Resolution Team.  The police will be putting up warning signs and organising additional patrols:
 
Hi Jeff,
 
We have had a Team of criminals targeting the above location over the past 18 months.
 
Offenders normally work in pairs, they identify their victims (normally elderly females / males) and follow them around the store. They will then ‘shoulder surf’ them, when they pay for their shopping, to obtain their pin number.  They then follow them to their car. One of them will distract the Victim, as they are loading their shopping and the other will dip their purse / wallet. Their cards are normally used within the hour. Suspect are mostly men, well dressed and very confident, in their tactics.
 
This is a common theme and that car park, is by far their preferred target.
 
Although offences have slow down over recent months, they have started up again and we had one earlier this afternoon.
