Tricksters have been foiled after they demanded money from a woman after knocking on her door in Stowmarket.
The incident occurred at 9am yesterday, Wednesday, November 4, in the vicinity of Phoenix Way.
Two men knocked on the door of a house in the area and told the occupant that she owed them £100 for unpaid Amazon purchases, which she knew was not true and so the men subsequently left.
Shortly after this, the same woman then received a phone call from an unknown number, with the caller claiming she needed to pay for items bought on her Amazon account. However, she had already double-checked with Amazon that there were no payments outstanding.
The two men who called at the door are described as follows:
– Male one: white, aged in his 20s, heavy build and blond hair. He was wearing a gold chain and numerous other items of gold jewellery
– Male two: mixed race, aged in his early 20s, of slim build and wearing a black converse tracksuit
They did not make any threats towards the woman whose house they called at, or make any attempts to enter the property. They walked off along a footpath, heading in the general direction of Mortimer Road.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Stowmarket Neighbourhood Response Team, quoting reference: 63986/20.
