MEMBERS’ COMMENTS:
 
Hi Jeff,
 
I wanted to share the following with you.
 
I received an email from my bank this morning, regarding a direct debit being set up in my name, using my account details from a company. I had never heard of them before, until now. I immediately called my bank and cancelled my direct debit.
 
I called the company’s head office and was notified that an annual membership had been setup in my name, with my address, by someone based at the leisure Pool. I haven’t been there, since my daughter was 3 years old (now 13).
 
I can only assume that someone has stolen post from my post box, to get my personal information.
 
Morale of the story check your bank account on a regular basis for unusual activity no matter the monetary value maybe and be vigilant and report it to your bank immediately.
 
Thanks,
 
Salvatore

High Jeff,
 
My son-in-law contacted us today in a bit of a state, because so called bailiffs or debt collection agents, told him there was an outstanding debt that unless he transferred £2,500, the bailiffs would call.  He was concerned on two counts, first that a debt on his business would be bad and he was worried someone might turn up and intimidate his wife, our daughter.
 
I quickly realised it was a scam and the intimidating calls and texts eventually died away.
 
For information the call claimed to be from High Court Enforcement Agency.
 
The so called debt, was to Crime Prevention Network that seems a bit ironic, in the circumstances.
