Some are very obvious, including spelling mistakes and grammatical errors; others can be extremely convincing. The proceeds are huge. The victims can be anyone, whether elderly, vulnerable, someone caught off guard or short of money, or someone simply responding to a request for help. Keep one step ahead, and don't be taken in...

Summer Crime Prevention tips

Don't give burglars an easy time.

During warm weather we are more likely to leave doors and windows open. The number of sneak-in house burglaries often increases during the summer months, so don't be complacent: If you cannot see the door or window then it should be shut and locked.

Amazon Scam Emails

Dec 2013
We would like to alert you to scam emails, allegedly from Amazon. We have been alerted by a member who has received such an email, and with the Christmas upsurge in ordering online such an email could easily be mistaken as genuine. The email thanks you for your order, and says the invoice is in the attached zip files. Genuine emails from Amazon always give the confirmation in the email text. Apparently a security check showed the sender was trying to access the address book of the recipient. If you receive such an email, do not open the zip files and delete it. There are many other scam e-mails in circulation so please be vigilant.
