She says she is a neighbour who needs to borrow £20
PEOPLE in Erith and Welling are being warned about a blonde, bespectacled trickster.
The woman knocks on doors saying that she is a neighbour who has just had her purse and keys stolen, and needs to borrow £20 to pay a locksmith.
She promises to pay the money back as soon as she gets into her house, but of course, the £20 never reappears.
Dana Wiffen, chairman of Bexley Borough Neighbourhood Watch, said: “We first started getting reports from Erith about six months ago but it seems she is operating in other areas now.
“We publicised it on Facebook and have since received lots of reports.”
The woman is about 5’2” and plump, with shoulder-length blonde hair and glasses.
