My partner returned home after a night out at approx 1.30am (Sunday morning) He was approached by similar guy on Long Lane by Tesco's (I showed him the picture and he assured me that it was not the same guy so maybe they are part of a group/gang)
The guy said his car was clamped with all the chickens from the restaurant (Simple India) inside it and the owner is on his way, but needs to empty the chickens and put them in the fridge etc. He then said that the clampers are on the way to release the car but he's £20 short. My partner being the nice guy that he is gave the guy £40!! (He did get a good telling off from me)
My partner said he saw no car and that the guy said it was parked a good distance away.
Before leaving £40 richer the guy said to call the restaurant at anytime and they will arrange for a free meal along with the £40 back. Needless to say neither of us called the restaurant as i knew immediately that it was part of a scam.
