Subject: RE: Trad English song & the BNP
We need to be vigilant in other ways as well. I was rung last year by a person whose name I vaguely recognised who said he had an instrument to sell. Since this sort of enquiry is part of my remit, and on checking I found he had been a player of said instrument a few years previously,I duly publicised it on a couple of appropriate lists.

Several people asked me for further contact details, which I supplied, and a couple even got as far as sending cheques to the "seller".

The original "seller" - after procrastination - disappeared, as did the money, and a police investigation was started. It later emerged he was a BNP member already wanted on some other matter, and is now said to be in Argentina with his girlfriend.

Be warned.
