A HOSPITAL nurse has fallen victim of a scam.

North Wales Police Community Safety Central took to Twitter on September 9 to say: "The nurse, at Glan Clwyd Hospital, saw an advert for a husky puppy for £1,000 pounds.

"The fraudster then asked her to pay £450 deposit, which she has done.

"This was over a week ago and she is now blocked on Gumtree and can no longer contact the seller."

There has been a surge in pet scams during the coronavirus pandemic.
