Message for accommodation providers - possible attempt scam

We would like to make accommodation providers aware of what is believed to be possible attempt to scam hotels.

The report is that a hotel in Wadebridge received a telephone call from a female claiming a member of staff had damaged her clothing during a stay and seeking reimbursement of cleaning costs.

The female had in fact never been a guest at the hotel.

Please be wary of this and inform staff.

If you have any information please phone 101 quoting log 1045 1 August 2022 or contact police via the website here.

Thank you.
