Fell for a new phone scam...
We should have been more careful, should have done our due dilligence - but oh well we are where we are.
Scam we fell for was basically the one in the link below. The differences for us are, it was 2 phones that were delivered rather than one. 1 phone was sent to the scammers. When the 2nd phone arrived it's when we realised what was going on. Phoned the police, who pointed us towards the action fraud site. Contacted bank - who've closed accoutns, cards, changed security checks etc. Contacted carphone warehouse who sent a courier around to collect the second phone. The problem we have is - carphone warehouse don't know about the other phone. Their records only show one phone being sent. Very very worried about when the company who sent the other phone decides to contact us wanting either their 1. phone or 2. compensation for their losses. The phone is selling for around £600-£700 in most places. Right now Action Fraud are not picking up and their auto message is saying response could take up to 28 days.
