HOTEL BOOKING SCAM ALERT

Alert message sent 17/02/2017 14:59:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

This is an information message from PCSO Dave Bunker of the Skegness Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Police have received a report that a person, possibly from Spain has booked a hotel room in the local area and then shortly before the arrival date has contacted the hotel to say they were unable to attend.

The hotel has refunded monies and later found that the funds from the person booking has not reached their account.

This does appear to be a scam. Please remain vigilant and contact action fraud if you feel you may have been a victim of this scam.

Thank you.
