There has been an incident recently in Kislinbury where a foreign couple approached an elderly woman asking if she had just dropped a £20 note they’d found on the floor. Whilst the woman was looking through her purse to check, the man took her credit card from her bag and they both left.
The man and woman in question had been standing behind the elderly woman beforehand in a supermarket, whilst paying for her shopping on the card, entering her PIN number.

Please make sure to keep any debit/credit cards and PIN numbers safe and secure, ensuring that you are careful to hide your PIN number when using it in view of other people.
