A man and a woman have been summonsed to court to face fraud charges.
Officers from the Serious Economic Crime Unit have been investigating alleged offences in which people claiming to work for a courier firm visited several victims to collect laptops and an Apple iPhone they had received in the post but had not ordered.
The alleged offences took place in May 2020 in Colchester and Felixstowe.
