“The lady tried to pay with a savings account card which got declined twice, she then said her son would wait inside while she went out to get her “other card” of course she does not return and then the son receives a phone call and says he has to go and does a runner… We had no way of contacting you as the number you used to make the reservation was fake! So we had no choice but to report it to the police…” the post read further.
