An hour ago a local named Susan Scott took to a Facebook group named Blackpool Take Out Reviews in an attempt to scam other locals out of their money.

In her post she claimed that she had reserved a few tables from various venues throughout St Annes and Blackpool, including Miller & Carter. As it is the final day of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, restaurants across the country are fully booked throughout the night. Susan offered to sell her reservations for up to £25 per table.

Miller & Carter have hit back, and announced that this is a scam and the tables she has claimed to have booked are not actually on their system.

The restaurant has warned the public that they must not pay for the tables as they are not booked and if they turn up there will be no space in the restaurant.

Please be aware of scammers, and if anyone is asking for money or card details on the internet you must perform extra checks like ringing the restaurant to check in this case.
