Fraud Alert: Flight Ticket Fraud

Your latest Smart Alert.

Fraudsters are attempting to entice victims who are looking for cheap flights abroad.

Victims have reported booking tickets via websites or a “popular” ticket broker, only to discover that after payment via bank transfer or electronic wire transfer, the tickets/booking references received are counterfeit. In some cases, all communications between the company or broker and the victim have been severed.

Fraudsters are targeting individuals who are seeking to travel to African nations and the Middle East, particularly those wishing to travel in time for popular public and religious holidays.

If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it us on 101 or to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040, or visiting http://www.actionfraud.police.uk.

Neighbourhood Watch: Advice: Cold weather

Advice: Cold weather

Your latest Smart Alert.

Now the cold weather is settling in, please ensure you stay safe when out on the roads.

If cold / icy weather is predicted DO NOT drive/cycle in these conditions unless your journey is essential. If it is, take care, plan your route and allow more journey time.

Top tips:

•Dig out the scraper and de-icer so that you can de-frost your windows, or use a windscreen cover overnight.

If you need to defrost your vehicle ensure you stay with it and don’t leave it unattended with the keys inside. Drivers should always be in control of their vehicle when the engine is running. Don’t make it easy for opportunist thieves.

•Ensure windows and mirrors are fully de-misted before driving off.

•Ensure vehicle lights are clear and working.

•Check your windscreen wash bottles are topped up with anti-freeze wash and windscreen wipers are in good working order.

•Check vehicle tyre tread and pressures.

•Keep an emergency kit on board for long journeys consisting of:

If you are taking your bicycle out, ensure you wear warm protective and high visibility clothing/equipment.

Ensure your bicycle is in good working order – check brakes, lights and tyre tread – keep your bike serviced.

Allow extra distance for smooth braking and make yourself visible on the road – allow yourself and other road users plenty of room and take care around corners.

Remember whilst icy conditions may seem a fun challenge, these conditions remain unpredictable and no amount of skill will help you to stay upright – know when it’s a non-cycle day!

Remember to take care and keep safe.

Fraud Alert: "Home Office" Immigration Cold-Calling Fraud

Your latest Smart Alert.

Fraudsters are purporting to be from the Home Office and cold-calling victims to claim that there is a problem with their immigration status. Victims are informed that in order to rectify this issue, they must pay an up-front fee and are often asked to confirm personal details such as their passport number and date of arrival in the United Kingdom.

Victims are asked to pay the fees through a variety of methods, including money transfers via a Money Service Bureau and by purchasing iTunes vouchers before relaying the voucher code to the suspect. The fraudster usually attempts to keep the victim on the phone until the payment is received, which can be hours at a time.

How to protect yourself:

  • The Home Office, Police or any UK Law Enforcement Agency will never ask for money over the telephone.
  • Government agencies do not use non-secure payment methods such as a transfer via a Money service Bureau, iTunes voucher(s) or cryptocurrency e.g. Bitcoin.
  • When receiving unsolicited calls, be wary of providing personal information, or confirming that personal information the caller already claims to hold is correct. Always ensure you know who you talking to. Ask for the details of the organisation the caller represents and call them back yourself on the officially published numbers rather than the numbers the caller may try to provide you with.
  • If you have any concerns regarding your immigration status, please visit the following government website to speak with someone regarding your specific immigration issue: https://www.gov.uk/contact-ukvi-inside-outside-uk

If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it to us on 101 and to Action Fraud by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk , or by calling 0300 123 2040.
