Money Warning: "Perfume" Scam

False offer of cheap perfume leads to robbery

Reports have started coming in of a scam perpetrated by groups of people, usually in a car at a car park, of enticing women to smell what they claim is perfume they are selling at a very cheap price.

It has turned out that it is not perfume at all, but ether or chloroform with which the victim is rendered unconscious and then robbed.

Therefore be warned: NEVER go anywhere near such enticements, no matter how good they sound.
