HOTELIERS in Scarborough have been warned following reports of a fly-by-night guest.
A man is believed to have been visiting hotels in the area using false names and making excuses as to why he cannot pay.
The stories he uses vary but have included bereavement, that he is moving to the area, and that his car is getting repaired and the insurance company will pay.
It is understood that he is originally from the Goole area. If you have any information contact PC Anthony Coleman, of Goole CID, on 01405 602036.
