Light-fingered lurk

November 29, 2015

The scam mob is at it again in the Parkside area, and probably a lot of other places.

Herself Indoors got an afternoon call on Saturday from someone purporting to be working for an unspecified company promising to reduce the Grumpy outgoings by providing ways of reducing our electricity bill.We were, he said, probably paying much too much just to see our way around the hacienda, and all that could be solved by a quick call from him. Say at 4.30?

The deadline came and went, and there was then an apologetic  phone call  next morning claiming that his car had broken down, and would there be anyone at home on that afternoon?.

Yes, said HI, someone would be round and, by the way, we were looking forward to sighting the caller’s credentials.

Which is where, strangely, the saga ends.

You have been warned…
