Gardaí in County Cavan are investigating a spate of similar ‘change scams’ recently.
On Tuesday June 5th, a male entered Pat’s Shop on the Main Street in Kingscourt, he asked the cashier to change some money, and he confused the cashier before making off with a sum of money. Meanwhile on Sunday June 11th, two men entered Apple Green on the Dublin Road in Kingscourt at around 9pm and carried the same scam.
Finally, McMullen’s Filling Station in Cootehill was the victim of a similar scam on Saturday afternoon June 16th. Gardaí are urging anyone in doubt, not to engage in changing money with any customers.
