Halstead Area Crime Prevention Panel
Please be aware of the following:
Beware of emails sent you by fraudsters to try and access your personal and bank details. There will be an attachment or link on the email which you will be asked to click to help solve the alleged problem. DO NOT OPEN ANY ATTACHMENTS OR CLICK ON ANY LINKS!! No bank will ask for your details over the internet. Just delete these emails.
Fraudsters are trying the same tricks as above to get you to divulge your personal details over the phone. Again, banks and other firms WILL NOT ask for details in this way. Just HANG UP!!
DO NOT GIVE YOUR CARD DETAILS, AND NEVER HAND OVER YOUR CREDIT CARD!
A Police Officer will call and state that they are investigating a crime on your bank account or credit card and will ultimately ask for your details or for your card as above.
ALL POLICE OFFICERS HAVE AN ID CARD SO ASK FOR THEIR FULL DETAILS.
DO NOT LET THEM INTO YOUR HOUSE BECAUSE AS YOU PHONE 101 TO CHECK THEIR IDENTITY YOU WILL BE BURGLED!
EVEN IF IT SEEMS CORRECT, DO NOT HAND OVER YOUR DETAILS OR CARD.
