POLICE have issued a warning to businesses in Falmouth, Penryn and Helston after an alleged fraudster was caught and charged last week.

Sergeant Martin Roberts from Falmouth police said the man was using a cloned card to buy various products across town and, although he has now been stopped, businesses should still “be as suspicious as they can be.”

“If someone comes in and wants to buy two phones, ask them why,” he said, as such questioning will usually elicit the truth from genuine customers.
