Tillfood, the UK’s leading online supplier of EPOS consumables, warns retailers to beware of Till Roll scam. Despite a barrage of publicity the ‘infamous’ till rolls scam continues especially in the hospitality sector.
The principle of the scam is simple. Businesses receive phone calls from the unscrupulous paper suppliers who, after verifying the name of the landlord, or owner persuade a member of staff to confirm an order. Unaware of anything suspicious the staff member agrees to accept a small order without agreeing a price.
Damian O’Brien, UK Sales Director at Tillfood commented: “We have heard of pubs being charged over £200 for 3 boxes of till rolls, that’s more than five times what people should expect to pay.”
“At Tillfood we find this type of business practice totally unacceptable. Unfortunately gives the whole of the till roll supplies industry a bad name.”
Damian O’Brien further advises: “To avoid this scam always make sure you know the name of the company, how many rolls are being supplied and most importantly the total cost of the order including delivery and VAT.”
