Restaurants in Queensland are reportedly being conned by Irish-born fraudsters.

Groups of Irish nationals are reported to be refusing to pay for their meals after pretending to find glass or plastic in restaurants on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane.

The alleged offenders are primarily women between the ages of 20 and 30 and are reported to often have children with them.

After indulging in a lavish meal, the alleged offenders then pretend to find glass in the food and refuse to pay.
