Thursday, 26 November 2015 09:05

North Wales Police are backing a national campaign aimed at online shopping fraud.

This Christmas, Action Fraud, City of London Police and Get Safe Online are joining forces to launch a national campaign warning people that online crime is most definitely coming to town.

This is in light of figures from last Christmas which show that individuals and businesses reported losing £16,426,989 to online fraudsters through online shopping and auction fraud [1]. This is a 42% increase in total financial loss compared with the 2013 festive period where £9,522,491 was lost by victims.

Scam Telephone Call - 'Problem with BT Hub' Print
Thursday, 26 November 2015 08:56

A resident has received a telephone from a person purporting to be from BT, advising them that there was a problem with their BT hub and that this had infected their computer. The caller display indicated that it was an international caller, so the resident hung up.  The resident contacted BT who advised them that they had not been trying to contact them. The resident is concerned as the caller appeared to have their account number

We would like to remind residents never to give out personal details to strangers who cold call. The caller is often only after your bank details, so that they can take money from your account.

Councillor Michael Morris has asked us to highlight the new police initiative for local people to become involved in Community Speed Watch. Essentially, community members can set up a group and be trained in the use of hand held speed guns.

The key points of this scheme are contained in a report produced by the police which is set-out below.

You can also find more infomation on the website news item dated 20th November.       

Community Speed Watch

2.1 Community Speed Watch (CSW) enables local people to become actively involved in helping to slow down traffic within their community. The groups can operate within 20, 30 and 40mph limits. Monitoring locations are chosen by members of the community who are then trained by North Wales Police in the use of hand-held speed monitoring devices to record the speed of motorists driving through their community.
