Alexandra Locksmiths have learned of a Festive Scam called Hugger Mugger which is spreading across London. 

Tis the season to be Jolly!  Many of us will be going to office parties and meeting up with friends for a few drinks to celebrate during the festive season and enjoying a mulled wine or two.

But beware of the ‘Hugger Mugger’.  After a few drinks or simply because we are feeling festive we let our guard down and the Hugger Mugger approaches you and your friends for a friendly hug Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! And off they go.

But next time you look for your phone, purse, wallet or keys you realise that they have gone and that the friendly stranger who gave you a hug and actually picked your pockets and stolen your items.

Nowadays we store lots of information on our phones including our address, bank details, calendar.  It is much easier for a burglar to find out where live and when we’ll be out.

If you need your locks changed call Alexandra Locksmiths North London office in Muswell Hill on 020 8883 1555 or our East London in Enfield on 020 8364 2000.  We cover London and the surrounding areas for Locksmith work, security gates, security grilles, collapsible grilles, intercom systems, access control and safes.
