Fraudulent Hire

In the spirit of passing on information that becomes available to us, we have been advised of three recent fraudulent thefts.

A substantial amount of camera equipment was hired recently from companies in London E1, London WC1 and Manchester M24.

A variety of Canon and Sony cameras and lenses were stolen.

London E1 - £6,500

Canon 5D Mark III Camera
Canon 16-35mm Lens
Canon 24-70 Lens

Manchester M24 - £10,000

Sony 27 Camera
Canon 35MM Lens
Canon 85MM lens
Canon 70mm Lens

London WC1V - £5,300

The hirer gave his name on each occasion as Karampal Singh.

Unfortunately this is all the information we have to hand, however, the police are investigating.

We would reiterate again the importance of thorough hire checks on all hirers, but also in particular on new customers to your company.
