TV Providers Discount Fraud 30/04/2018 17:49:20 [217873]


TV Providers Discount Fraud
_____
The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) have noticed an increase in Action Fraud reports where fraudsters are offering a discount on Television service provider subscriptions. Fraudsters are cold-calling victims, purporting to be from a Television (TV) provider offering a discount on their monthly subscription. Victims have been told the following: their subscription needs to be renewed; that part or all, of the TV equipment has expired and they are due an upgrade on the equipment/subscription. In order to falsely process the discount, the fraudster asks victims to confirm or provide their bank account details. The scammers may also request the victim’s identification documents, such as scanned copies of passports.

The fraudsters are using the following telephone numbers: “08447111444”, “02035190197” and “08001514141”. The fraudster’s voices are reported to sound feminine and have an Asian accent.

Later victims make enquiries and then discover that their TV service provider did not call them and that the fraudster has made transactions using the victim’s bank account details.

This type of fraud is nationwide. Since the beginning of this year (2018), there have been 300 Action Fraud Reports relating to this fraud. From the reports received, victims aged over 66 seem to be the most targeted.

What you need to do

. Don’t assume a phone call or email is authentic: Just because someone knows your basic details (such as your name and address or even your mother’s maiden name), it doesn’t mean they are genuine. Criminals can exploit the names of well-known companies in order to make their scams appear genuine.
. Don’t be rushed or pressured into making a decision: a genuine company won’t force you to make a financial decisions on the spot. Always be wary if you’re pressured to purchase a product or service quickly, and don’t hesitate to question uninvited approaches in case it’s a scam.
. Stay in control: Have the confidence to refuse unusual requests for personal or financial information. Always contact the company yourself using a known email or phone number, such as the one written on a bank statement or bill.

Barthol Chapel Church – Notice of Open Meeting, 30th April, at 7:30 pm

Barthol Chapel Church – Notice of Open Meeting, 30th April, at 7:30 pm

You are invited to an open meeting on 30th April at 7:30 pm in Barthol Chapel church to start a discussion about options for the church building and whether there is any desire for it to become a more flexible space, suitable for wider community use, whilst remaining a place of worship.

The church is the biggest public building in the community and it is greatly underused. It is about 21 x 8.6 metres, almost the size of Inverurie swimming pool (25 x 9m).

There is work needing to be done on the roof and exterior walls of the church and so this seems a good moment to think about how we can maximise use of the space. With some internal alterations – initial suggestions include improved heating, a level wooden floor and removable seating – it could become a really useable, accessible community asset.

Access to the school is limited to term times, evenings and weekends so at present Barthol Chapel lacks all year round access to a large community space.

This is just the beginning of a conversation about if and how the building might be adapted. The first thing to discover is whether there is any need or desire for such a plan.

We would very much like to hear your opinion, ideas, comments and any concerns, so please come along, if you can, on Monday April 30th.

The meeting is in the church so you can explore the space and imagine its potential.

More details can be found at www.bartholchapel.com

Refreshments will be provided.

Police Scotland Annual Police Plan 2018


Survey – Annual Police Plan 2018 – 19
_____
Annual Police Plan 2018/19

Police Scotland is currently developing the 2018/19 Annual Police Plan which will be laid before the Scottish Parliament at the end of March.

Our plan has been shaped around the areas of focus within the Policing 2026 strategy ‘Serving a Changing Scotland’ of prevention, protection, communities, knowledge and innovation. It sets out the policing priorities for 2018/19 and summarises the planned activities to address these priorities.

We are keen to engage with you and offer you the opportunity to comment on extracts from the draft plan via the following Citizen Space survey:
consult.scotland.police.uk/consultation/annual-police-plan/

I would appreciate if you could consider the information within the survey and provide feedback by 21 February 2018. Your feedback will be very useful as we develop the final version of the plan in March 2018.

If you have any queries regarding this engagement phase, please contact Sergeant Keith Forrester via strategicplanningdevelopment@scotland.pnn.police.uk < mailto:strategicplanningdevelopment@scotland.pnn.police.uk> .

Yours sincerely

Malcolm Graham

CYBER RESILIENCE – GET SAFE ONLINE WEEK 23/10/2017

 CYBER RESILIENCE – GET SAFE ONLINE WEEK

Phishing is a scam where criminals typically send emails to thousands of people pretending to come from banks, credit card companies, online shops and auction sites as well as other trusted organisations.
Don’t be tricked into going to a fraudulent site through a phishing email – it may look exactly like the real thing but is actually a fake, designed to trick victims into entering personal information.
Signs you are being phished:
* The sender’s email address may be different from the trusted organisation’s website address.
* The email may be sent from a completely different address or a free webmail address.
* The email may not use your proper name, but a non-specific greeting such as “Dear customer.”
* A sense of urgency; for example the threat that unless you act immediately your account may be closed.
* A prominent website link. These can be forged or seem very similar to the proper address, but even a single character’s difference means a different website.
* A request for personal information such as username, password or bank details.
* You weren’t expecting to get an email from the organisation that appears to have sent it.
* The entire text of the email may be contained within an image rather than the usual text format. The image contains an embedded link to a bogus site.

Use email safely:
* Do not open emails which you suspect as being scams.
* Do not forward emails which you suspect as being scams.
* Do not open attachments from unknown sources.
* If in doubt, contact the person or organisation the email claims to have been sent by … better safe than sorry.
* Do not readily click on links in emails from unknown sources. Instead, roll your mouse pointer over the link to reveal its true destination, displayed in the bottom left corner of your screen. Beware if this is different from what is displayed in the text of the link from the email.
* Do not respond to emails from unknown sources.
* Do not make purchases or charity donations in response to spam email.
* Don’t click on ‘remove’ or reply to unwanted email.
* Check junk mail folders regularly in case a legitimate email gets through by mistake.
* When sending emails to multiple recipients, list their addresses in the ‘BCC’ (blind copy) box instead of in the ‘To’ box. In this way, no recipient will see the names of the others, and if their addresses fall into the wrong hands there will be less chance of you or anybody else receiving phishing or spam emails.
* Similarly, delete all addresses of previous parties in the email string, before forwarding or replying.
* If you are suspicious of an email, you can check if it is on a list of known spam and scam emails that some internet security vendors such as McAfee and Symantec feature on their websites.
* Most Microsoft and other email clients come with spam filtering as standard. Ensure yours is switched on.
* Most spam and junk filters can be set to allow email to be received from trusted sources, and blocked from untrusted sources.
* When choosing a webmail account such as gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail, make sure you select one that includes spam filtering and that it remains switched on.
