As people have ordered more and more online during lockdown, police issued a warning against a home-delivery scam... and now three people have been arrested in Hertfordshire.
Police said two men and a woman from south London, have been arrested in connection with nine fraud offences, where people received items like smart phones and laptops that they had not ordered.
A short while later a courier arrived to collect the packages, claiming they had been delivered to the wrong address.
One arrest was made in Stevenage, after a resident was alerted to the scam after reading about the police warning.
Officers believe such scams involved purchases being made using stolen bank cards, but the crooks use someone else's address for delivery to try to avoid detection.
They then ring the addressee and claim to be from the delivery company, say the company's made a mistake and go round to collect the goods.
The three suspects have been released under investigation.
