Police Warning Over Jewellery Scammers
Police are warning people to be on their guard against female jewellery scammers.
Bedfordshire Police say at least five people have been the victims of theft in Luton and Dunstable in the last two months.
The latest incident took place on Wednesday morning (June 1) around midday in Eldon Road in Luton, when a woman approached a man loading his vehicle on his driveway and placed a gold chain around his neck offering it for sale.
He asked her to leave and she and others who were with her removed the victim's real chain, without his knowledge, leaving theirs behind.
The thieves have previously targeted victims in and around Dunstable and Luton. Two thefts occurred in Sainsbury's in Dunstable Road, Luton and Boscombe Road, Dunstable.
Two further thefts occurred in residential roads near to the Luton and Dunstable Hospital usually targeting elderly victims.
Investigating officer, Ruth Melnykowicz said: "On all occasions the offenders have been described as females of eastern European appearance, wearing long skirts and head scarves."
Men are less likely to talk than women with 54% of women having had a conversation compared to 37% of men.
Theresa May has now signed a letter to trigger Article 50, the start of the official process to leave the EU.
