Police warn of cheap deals and cash up front offers
TWEED police are warning people to be warey of 'dodgy dealers'.
Tweed-Byron crime co-ordinator Stuart Crawford said we lived in an area "with very vulnerable people."
"They're honest and believe what people are telling them," he said.
The warning said to beware of suspicious people who offer cheap deals for today only, ask for cash up front and offer to drive you to the bank to get money for payment.
Other tell tale signs included workmen not supplying receipts of contacts, not being able to produce ID and people who make you feel pressured to accept their offer.
"We get these things happen every now and then," Sgt Crawford said.
Although there we no recent examples, Sgt Crawford said in the past he had seen the occasional shifty dealer.
