A NEW scam involving a delivery of alcohol is fleecing people out of their entire savings.
The crook allegedly phones the victims’ home, claiming to be from a delivery company and asking if the homeowner will be at home as they have a package.
Within an hour a ‘courier’ appears at the door with a basket of flowers and a bottle of wine, and says a card detailing who it is from will follow.
They then say they need a payment to prove an adult accepted the delivery as it contains alcohol.
Producing a hand-held card machine, they ask for a payment of £3.40, and the victims put their card and pin number into the machine.
They are provided with a receipt for the amount, but a couple days later they find their entire back account has been cleaned out and all their money gone.
