Combined Industries Theft Solutions

September 2023


A plant and tool hire company based in Staffordshire was contacted by an individual claiming that he worked for Dynamiq Engineering. 

The individual’s request to hire a digger and dumper, contradicted previous orders given by Dynamiq Engineering. Suspicion grew when the delivery address provided was Wilmot Gardens, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire - a residential location with no construction work taking place on-site or nearby. A false Purchase Order number was provided and, when asked to confirm details and provide proof of identity the individual refused to give a name and cancelled the enquiry. The mobile number the person called from was 07493 154523.

It was discovered that this individual had targeted several other businesses in that area for plant and equipment.

If you are approached by this person we would advise contacting Action Fraud, the national policing reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Visit the website at www.actionfraud.police.uk, or call them on 0300 123 2040.
