Sussex Police warn public about paypoint scams

POLICE are warning businesses about a scam involving the Paypoint machines found in many stores.

They are asking shops to be vigilant after a man called a store in Crowborough pretending to be from Paypoint. The man told the cashier that maintenance to the machine was needed and asked for certain keys to be pressed. After the call was made the cashier realised that more than £1,000 had been debited to the machine.

Local police are currently visiting stores offering advice.
