Message for garages

Alert message sent 09/07/2021 14:12:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police

We would like to make garages aware that we have received a recent report of what is believed to be fraudulent activity with tyre purchasing.
A telephone order was put through for high value tyres and card payment details given, the tyres were later collected by a person purporting to be a courier collecting on behalf of the buyer, the payment was later declined due to suspected fraudulent activity.
Please be wary of this and warn other garages.
If you have any information please phone 101 or email quoting log 276 9 July 2021.
Thank you.
