Conmen pose as fridge service personnel

Written By Sambasivarao on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 | Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Several senior citizens living alone in flats have been tricked and robbed of their possessions.

Very innovative methods are used to enter flats. An elderly woman living in a Housing Board flat behind Karaikudi in Besant Nagar with maid servants, last a gold bangle worth Its. 40,000.

A smart looking young man offered to clean their fridge for free and claimed that he was coming from Whirlpool service centre.

Ten days later he came and told the lady that he had become the MD of the company and fell at her feet for blessing.

He then told her she had won 3 grams gold and needed proof of some gold which she has. Innocently she showed him her 4 bangles.

'The maid got suspicious and asked the man to leave and grabbed 3 bangles back from him.
He hurriedly left saying his van was waiting outside and he had to show them this bangle for proof He was never seen again.

Similarly, another lady at Adyar, let in a man who claimed that he was from Whirlpool and will service their fridge for free and asked her to clear the fridge.

When she bent down to do so, he snatched the lady's Mali and ran outside. In both instances, no police com­plaint was given. -The man was very friendly, so I trusted him. It is my fault and so did not lodge a complaint I am old and cannot be involved in police cases" says the 65 year old resident.
