Please be aware there maybe a persistent offender lurking about! If you get a lady (with an Essex accent) wanting goods to go in the Essex area usually southend-on-sea it maybe be dodgey, This is how it seems to work,

phone rings, (withheld no) ''do you take credit cards?

''can I have a quote please to pick up goods from A to B?''

You quote a price don't worry if it's £5000 she will still take it, She will give you a card no from an Australian cloned card with made up address as the postcode digits are similar You collect goods things like new fridges and washing machines (I have heard she tried it with £3K of meat) You deliver goods to a none descript address or empty garage, do you end of day banking and the card will be flagged up by the bank as fraud and you will loose the money and or get a visit from the plod as the collection point has your reg no etc, I had had her call a couple of times and she called a local company this morning,

I had a clown in March bothering me, he had ordered loads of stuff from a Mercedes garage in Southport, delivery address was at the side of the road near an off licence, he wouldnt take no for an answer so just blocked his number

Rule of Thumb.

We require a landline number, Then call it back and google it.

We then call the collection address to verify that it is a genuine transaction they are happy with or is this a new customer paying via card.

They then pull out the stops to check if it is genuine.

We have saved many companies many thousands in potential lost goods.

Ask the caller for the full delivery address and tell them that no en route changes are permitted, ID at the delivery address is also needed and also the card.

We told one scammer that we carry a chip and pin machine for final verification before we unlock the vehicle.

They said forget it it's too much hassle. We don't have the time for that. I said what a 10 second pin entry?

It weeds most scammers out but can be labourios to do.
