Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


A VERY GOOD WEEKEND:

NO BURGLARIES

AND

NO CARS BROKEN INTO

FIRST:  AN ACTION FRAUD CASE IN ASCOT – A DELIVERY SCAM:


The aggrieved was awaiting a delivery of a parcel.  She then happened to receive a text, saying that the delivery company were unable to deliver the parcel, as they had insufficient details on the paperwork.  Would they please click on the link and complete all the necessary fields, so that the company could arrange another delivery date.  The aggrieved did that and filled in whatever was asked for – including their bank details.

The aggrieved then received a phone call from supposedly the bank, to say there had been fraudulent use of the account and they would send a a new card by express, the following Monday.

The aggrieved became suspicious and phoned the bank, who confirmed they had not been in contact and it was likely to be a scam.

This victim may have been the victim of 2 potential scams, but is very confused and vulnerable.

PLEASE – PAUSE – BREATHE – THINK.  Find a telephone number for whoever had emailed / texted / left a message – form you own records / the internet – BUT DO NOT USE ANY NUMBER CONTAINED WITHIN THE MESSAGE – and ask if they have made contact with you.  The time this takes, will not be a problem and – if it is really important – they will write to you !

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

The lockdown has resulted in many neighbourhoods drawing closer together in supporting local residents with needs, and in neighbours spending a lot more time talking to each other over fences or across the road. This has improved community spirit no end, and a great way to keep this spirit alive is for residents to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or start up a new scheme if there is not already one covering their respective street.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about looking out the window and being alert for any crime in the neighbourhood, it is much more than that. It serves as a valuable resource for crime prevention, in supporting the Police with things such as local home security surveys, installing crime prevention aids in homes for the vulnerable and elderly especially, helping those vulnerable and elderly residents with any other needs, and in drawing residents together in supporting one another.
 
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents and serves as a means to highlight local issues relating to crime and residents in need. New NHW schemes are continuously being 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.
 
To search for your nearest NHW scheme, or to set up a new scheme, visit www.ourwatch.org.uk and enter your postcode. 

For any questions relating to Neighbourhood Watch please contact the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association at contact@windsorascotnhwa.org.uk
