CURRENT SCAMS AND OTHER INFORMATION - JANUARY 2022

Alert message sent 22/01/2022 16:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


I am attaching a document with information on current scams and on Catalytic Converter thefts.   If you have any problem opening the links, please copy and paste them into your browser to access the articles.  There are so many circulating, so please do not click on any links or give any contact or banking details.   Beware of fake vouchers from supermarkets or competitions on social media and do not share them to your friends.   I would be grateful if you could forward this Alert to your neighbours, friends and family to avoid them becoming a victim. 

You can report spam texts directly to your mobile phone provider.  All operators now use 7726 as the short code to report spam texts and these can be forwarded free of charge. 
All of the UK’s mobile operators worked together to deploy a tool which collates all the information from the 7726 short code in real time.  This means they can take early action to block numbers that are generating spam on their networks. They can also use this information to inform the regulators.

I am attaching a TVP Burglary Poster to make residents aware to use lights on timers and a radio on a timer when you are away or even out for the evening.

Best wishes
