Police warn about TV selling scam


Police are investigating a report of a fraudulent sale of a television, from the rear of a white van registration number: YO17OMZ. The incident occurred at Tebay Services on the M6, on Friday 5th February 2021 at 5.30pm. There have been three reported incidents of a similar nature spanning from November 2020 to 5th February 2021.

A Police spokesperson said:

"The reports are from various car parks, and service stations on the M6, in the County. Details from the reports include, between two and three males, with Irish accents, selling televisions, stating they are surplus stock for a hotel and they need to sell at a reduced price. 

"The televisions are wrapped in bubble wrap and have the make, model and price of the item displayed in shop-style stickers. 

"Victims of this fraud have later discovered the televisions are of a lower value than shown and are broken.

"The males have been reported to police as being in a variety of vehicles.

"Police would like to advise members of the public that, if they are approached by anyone purporting to be selling a high value items for a knocked down price, that they decline to engage and walk away. If you are made to feel pressured or uncomfortable in any way, please contact the police immediately.

"If anyone has any information or has been approached by people selling televisions, please contact 101 and ask to speak with PC 2600 Emma Mullan or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
