Anis Ben-Sghaier, 31, is accused of scamming the couple, who live in Diss, out of more than £10,500 after targeting them with cold calls.

Norwich Magistrates’ Court was told he is said to have approached the couple claiming to be representing two maintenance companies.

Cp... what a statement, so a name now determines whether a person is from Harlow. News flash, you ignorant small minded fool. Harlow, is by no means a place that needs, lets say those without the british names to tarnish the Harlow name. Maybe if you take yourself into that big world you will quickly see, that all areas have criminals some with names like the above. Sorry to break it to you, those with "Harlow names" equally commit crimes as crime does not discrimaite. Attitudes like yours are are unhelpful, try growing up and condem the person not their name or heritage you tool.
