ATTEMPTED FRAUD IN BOSTON, EAST MIDLANDS AREA - PLEASE BE AWARE

CITS have been alerted to the following attempted fraud:

Hirebase has reported a man asking to hire a hybrid breaker and plate compactor on account. He gave a few different post codes to check accounts (all closed) then gave the account number SDY0082 belonging to G and S Hutchinson.

He supplied an order number GSH767216 but the depot told him they just needed to call the office to get confirmation, at which point he said he needed to get his address book out the van. Needless to say, he did not come back into the branch.  The vehicle registration number is FE64 HPO.

This was clearly an attempt to hire equipment fraudulently. Please remain vigilant and beware of potential fraudsters operating in the East Midlands area.
