We have mail from the Kitchen Bathroom & Bedroom Specialists Association

We have been advised that there are several scams in operation at the moment targeting specialist retailers for appliance purchases. Requests are received via email/internet and when a contact phone number is requested, an email response is received citing a hearing impairment so they cannot communicate verbally.

Payments are then being made via stolen credit cards and the appliances picked up by couriers normally within a couple of hours. As far as we are aware the couriers are not involved and are also being paid via the stolen credit cards.

Please make sure that you meet, in full, your credit card provider's terms and conditions which should enable you to reclaim any losses between £100 and £30,000.

If you are approached in this way, and believe a scam is involved, contact your local Trading Standards office and local police.
