Protect Yourself Against Courier Fraud – updated

Dear Watch Member,

The incident occurred on 21/07/15 when an elderly resident received a phone call from a man claiming to be from the Police Fraud Department. The man asked the woman if she had used her card in the last few days & mentioned fraudsters. The woman was asked to withdraw £500 from her bank & someone would collect it later.

Later that same day the woman received another phone call from the same man, but this time asking her to transfer the £500 via money transfer at a local shop and she would receive £3,000 in return.

People are reminded of the following advice:

The courier scam is when fraudsters call and trick you into handing your cards and PIN numbers to a courier on your doorstep. There are many variations of the scam, but it usually follows this method:

  • A fraudster will cold call you on a landline, claiming to be from your bank or the police. They state their systems have spotted a fraudulent payment on your card or it is due to expire & needs to be replaced.
  • In order to reassure you that they are genuine, they suggest that you hang up and ring the bank/police back straight away. However, they don’t disconnect the call from the landline so that when you dial the real phone number, you are actually still speaking to the fraudster.
  • They then ask you to read out your PIN or type it on your phone keypad. They may ask for details of other accounts you hold with the bank or financial service provider.
  • Finally, they send a courier to you to collect your bank card. The fraudster will have then obtained your name, address, full bank details, card & PIN.

Protect yourself against courier fraud:

  • Your bank will never send a courier to your home.
  • Your bank and the police will never collect your bank card
  • Your bank and the police will never ask for your PIN.

If you receive one of these calls end it immediately Call us on 101 to report any suspicious calls.

GREEN MAN

Hi Everyone

I think I can speak for everyone in saying what a great success this year’s ‘Milwich Duck and Music Festival’ has been. We have had so many nice comments made to us during the course of the week.

Ruth & I would like to thank the numerous people who participated in all capacities of the organizing, setting up, running and clearing up of last weekend’s Festival. Without their help there would be no Festival.

As is my want I prefer to pass our appreciation verbally when I see people but if I have missed you I am sorry.

We would also like to thank all those who came to the festival and donated so very generously.

Regards

Rod and Ruth
