Crime Prevention Advice
Be sure at the door
Help prevent your loved one becoming a victim of distraction burglary by ensuring they know these tips:
STOP: Are you expecting anybody? You don’t have to answer your door!
CHECK: Ask to see the caller’s ID - are they ‘Buy with Confidence’ accredited?
SAY NO: Tell cold callers to go, and shut the door.
For more advice on step you can take to help protect yourself, your neighbours, your friends and family from becoming a victim of crime visit the crime prevention pages on our website.
Be Fraud Smart
Some phone companies provide national numbers and premium rate numbers, such as 0800 or 0845, to businesses or individuals, who often don’t need to provide ID to get them.
Scammers often use these numbers. They’ll divert them to unregistered pay-as-you-go mobile numbers or to a separate answering service, making them difficult to trace.
Because of this, don’t rely on the appearance of a phone number to tell you what sort it is.
For example, 0208 is usually a London number and 07952 a UK mobile number. But scammers buy these numbers to trick you into believing the business is legitimately based somewhere that it really isn’t.
Scammers also use software to have any number they wish to appear on your phone’s caller ID screen. This method, known as ‘spoofing’, means they can appear to be calling from a legitimate number linked to a person or company, when in fact they aren’t.
Always be wary of the identity of a person you don’t know when speaking to them on the phone. If a scammer gives out a phone number, that number can’t always be traced and the user identified.
