Scam around Bendigo businesses

An age-old scam is doing the rounds again with customers handing over large denominations and pocketing more cash then they actually had in the first place.

The owner of Bendigo's Lollies-2-Go is warning other local businesses about a man who entered the store at the weekend. asking for change for a hundred dollar note.

After carefully slipping some of he change in his back pocket, he's then confused the staff member and waked out with more than he started with.

Police and the shop owner have released an image which can be found on their Facebook page and are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
