Corrie’s Will Mellor targeted by gang who stole £10,000
Coronation Street star Will Mellor has been speaking about the horrific ordeal he experienced that saw a gang steal his identity and £10,000.
Will, who plays Harvey in the ITV soap, mentioned how the criminals had tracked down his local postman to get his personal information.
Speaking on his and Ralf Little’s ‘Two Pints with Will and Ralf’ podcast, he explained: ‘It was only a year and a half ago. A lovely lady who lives opposite across the road said, “I just want to let you know there’s been a strange person going into your mailbox”.’
‘So I checked my CCTV and there’s this lad, he put his hand in my letterbox and took something out’ Will continued.
‘He’s following the postman. They’ve robbed my identity and they’ve opened bank accounts in my name.’
