I AM ON A/L FOR THREE WEEKS, SO MESSAGES WILL BE THIN ON THE GROUND !
RE MY CRIME INFORMATION SENT LAST WEEK.
I have had this from Peter our CCTV Guru:
Hi Jeff, typo alert!
The doorbell camera is HD quality not HDD (which means Hard Disk Drive) J
I just though HDD meant ‘best quality’ !!!
NEXT: From Rodney:
Just a comment that there are several video doorbells available that do not require WiFi.
They are as simple to install, as a standard wired doorbell. They use a wire, to connect to a screen inside the home.
They record the video footage to a memory card. They obviously do not allow you to see package etc deliveries remotely on a mobile phone, but if you are home all day, as many vulnerable adults are, they do allow you to see and talk to callers, without opening the door to them.
Keep up the good work.
Many thanks Rodney - we can cover everyone !
NEXT: Another SEXTORTION case. This case was a woman talking to a scammer man online !
The woman was going through a divorce and was very low. A man online took an interest in her, talking to to her frequently and paying a lot of attention. He asked her to register an app - Kick me, which she did - so that they could talk privately ! The man was very persuasive and got her to take intimate photos, which she sent to him. As soon as he had them, his attitude changed. He said he knew where she worked and unless she did as he said, he would send them to her employer.
PLEASE, PLEASE - DO NOT TAKE OR SEND PHOTOS, YOU WOULD NOT BE HAPPY FOR YOUR FAMILY TO SEE - YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE !!!
NEXT: A young woman was chatting to a man on Instagram, when he asked her if she wanted to make £1,000. She said yes and passed over all her bank details including her PIN number - later she found he had stolen £360 !!

FIRST SCAM EMAIL was in my TVP inbox twice !
It was not addressed to anyone, had no header and just gives a foreign name and says that I had been selected out of a list of potential beneficiaries to share in $5m - please respond if you are interested !
The email to reply looks Spanish
DON’T DO IT !
NEXT: from Jayne. She has received a text to say that ‘they’ were unable to process her last ‘bill ‘no details as to what it was for - to avoid fees ………click on the link to update all your billing information.
DON’T DO IT !
NEXT: from Ann:
I have had half a dozen similar emails, during the past two weeks, for different amounts, from different companies. They say that I have ‘failed to make a payment’. It goes on to say, that the payment may have been made, but is not yet showing. It then gives a Link, to go to the Resolution Centre, to resolve any outstanding issues on the account.
I forwarded them to spoof@ PayPal.com which replied with thanks, telling me to check my PayPal account and delete the email. Nothing appears on my account, they are obviously phishing, but there is a risk that vulnerable people might click on them and reply, thus giving the spammers their details.
NEXT: from Pauline:
I believe the email below is a very elaborate scam. As you can see it has been sent to someone else and I have been copied into it.
I'm a retired teacher and have nothing to do with any sort of building works and know no one, by called ‘Steve Hill’, so I can't see that it was a simple mistake. I'm presuming, they think I will open the PDF to find out what this is about and then whatever nefarious activity they are involved in, will kick in.
If you think that it is a scam perhaps you can warn all your subscribers.
The email says that they have been trying to make contact, but the email is not addressed, it merely says - ‘hello’. But for some reason emails have failed. It then goes on to talk about wall insulation.
A copy of the survey is attached - presumably if you have not been involved, you may open the link to see the ‘Survey’.
DON’T DO IT !
