Scam - A couple of weeks ago various neighbours opened the door to a young woman who was nicely dressed and well spoken with a headscarf, who said that she lived at number 16A and had locked herself out and could we lend her some money for the train to go to her sister to collect her keys. Fortunately we knew about this scam and most important we knew who lived in 16A, so told her we were going to speak to that neighbour.. She quickly disappeared. She had tried other houses as well.
