Pawnbroker warns of online scam
A PAWNBROKER has warned of a fake Facebook account trading under its name.
The spoof site pretends to belong to Cash-In-Hand, which has shop branches in Queen Street Colchester, and New Street, Braintree.
It has been advertising iPhones and Xboxes, taking payment by PayPal but never sending out the goods.
Branch manager, Kevin Fisher, has warned customers to be vigilant after receiving complaints from seven people conned by the scam.
The firm’s genuine Facebook site can be found at facebook.com/colchester.cashinhand
