The Public Protection Partnership has received a report from a resident who has been scammed behind the banks in Bracknell yesterday. A male with ‘Link car park attendant’ on his clothing was standing by the 'pay for parking' machine and advised the customer that there was a problem with the payment machine and offered assistance.
Subsequently the machine swallowed his card and he later realised that £1000 had been taken from his bank account.
The customer called the car park contractors, Saba, to make them aware. Saba have advised all their staff to be particularly vigilant.
The police have been informed of this incident. A description of the male posing as a car park attendant was of Asian origin wearing a black scarf partly covering his face and dark clothing.
Although this took place in Bracknell, this has happened in Windsor in recent months.
