Crime prevention advice
Don’t give burglars the tools they need
Tools stored in a shed or garage can be expensive but they can also be used to help break into your house.
For more advice on protecting your home visit the crime prevention pages on our website.
Be fraud smart
Sadly, we are still seeing fraudsters continue to target people by social media platforms such as WhatsApp, messaging from an unfamiliar number.
Claiming to be a family member who has a new phone number because their phone has been damaged or lost. The victim is then asked for money.
If you get an unexpected message like this take steps to protect yourself by calling your family member on the old phone number you have for them, and not the new number, in case this is a fraudster.
If you know someone who use’s messaging apps sometimes but might not be aware of the scam, please speak to them and make them aware of what to do.
You can forward the scam message onto Action Fraud by sending it to 7726.
For more advice on protecting yourself against fraud, or for information on what to do if you think you have been a victim of fraud go to our website.
