CITS FRAUD ALERT - HIRE EQUIPMENT

CITS have been informed, of reported fraudulent attempts to hire equipment from depots across the Midlands and North of England network. In the week commencing Monday 28th February a gentleman going by name 'Ryan Samuels' phoned the hire centres asking for 4.2m scaffold towers, posing as a cash customer and leaving deposits on what are believed to be stolen credit cards.

It's believed there are between two and three individuals responsible for these attempted hires and, when asked to come to the depots with forms of identification they claim they are unable to attend.

They have called using two mobile numbers: 07774 562065 and 07551 226599.

These activities have been reported to the National Policing Reporting Centre for fraud and cybercrime www.actionfraud.police.uk with case reference: NFRC220305052420
