MY FAVOURITE MESSAGE
 
NO CRIME TO REPORT OVER THE WEEKEND
 
NO BURGLARIES
 
AND
 
NO CAR CRIME !

 
FIRST - ANOTHER SEXTORTION SCAM
 
The victim was sitting at home alone, in the early hours on his computer.  He received a friend request from a woman be believed he knew.  He accepted and they started chatting. They then went offline to a video link, where the conversation became intimate and certain acts took place.  Almost immediately the person revealed that they were not the woman the victim thought he knew, but a scammer. The scammer demanded money or he would send recorded video footage to the victim’s wife and all his friends on Facebook. The scammer did in fact send the recorded footage to the victim’s wife. The police were called immediately.
 
PLEASE DO NOT DO, OR SAY, ANYTHING ONLINE - ON ANY PLATFORM - EVEN WITH PEOPLE YOU BELIEVE YOU KNOW THAT YOU WOULD NOT BE HAPPY FOR YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO SEE, OR HEAR !
 
DON’T LET IT BE YOU !

 MEMBERS’ COMMENTS:
 
TRACK AND TRACE SCAMS HAVE STARTED AND I HAVE HAD SEVERAL REPORTS:

It involves a call from a company saying that you have been identified as someone who has been in contact with a Covid19 patient, and is therefore possibly infected.  Due to Data Protection, they cannot reveal who that person was. They then ask you to confirm your address, so that a testing kit can be sent to you.  They also ask for your bank card details, as there will be a charge of £500.  If you complain, and say that this should be free under the NHS and they feel you cannot be persuaded, the caller puts the phone down!
 
DON’T DO IT - DON’T LET IT BE YOU

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot.

In just the last few months ten new NHW schemes have been set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
