An old scam reappears

An old scam reappears - A neighbour had a visit last night at about 7.30pm, from a man who said he has been locked out of his house and did not have enough money to pay the locksmith. He wanted €16 and was quite credible but fortunately the neighbour knew the owner of the apartment of the address he gave and on questioning the scammer decided to quickly leave obviously knowing that he was found out. We live in a gated community and he still managed to get in, so please be aware that this is only one of the many scams doing there rounds at the moment, eg. Computer repair phone calls, cold calling electric and gas service engineers.
