Only a few weeks after the previous fraudulent hire, thieves have once again targeted ProCentre on Friday 28th June.
Pro Centre took a call from ‘Nick at ‘Prolighting’ late on Friday urgently needing
2x 5D (didn’t specify the mark) and
2x Canon 50mm, which they changed to 85mm mid conversation.
This sounded suspicious so they called Prolighting – who do have a Nick, but Nick was away on that day. The PO number that was offered for the booking was a nonsense number.
The police were called and a taxi from a legitimate taxi company arrived supposedly to collect the goods – the delivery was supposed to go to 41 Mare street which is a previous Prolighting address.
The telephone number used for the booking was 07746 168 798.
