Help Your Neighbours

After yesterdays incident of an elderly lady being ‘mugged’ here in Whittlesey, I have made ALL my elderly neighbours aware of the incident.
At this time of year – ‘we’ all become a bit complacent and not always aware of our immediate surroundings.
Many have parcels delivered, some go next door, always make sure who is at the door before you open it.
I have a very nice elderly neighbour (90) who is very sharp – however it is the highlight of her day (week) if someone comes to the door – as she sees very few people.
Luckily she is savvy enough to have a good chain on the door and I always call her if I am expecting any delivery –

Please be a good neighbour and keep an eye/ear open for them.

In the past few days, criminals have been using an automated telephone messaging service within the UK, claiming they are from the South West Regional Cyber Crime Unit. The person listening to the message are told that their internet connection had been compromised and that it would be shut down within 24 hours. The message then invites the person listening to press 1 on their keypad to speak with the technical department. (DO NOT DO THIS)
Although the UK is covered by both regional and local cyber crime units, this is the first time I have known the criminal purport to be from a legitimate UK Police department. This is a total fraud and no one should react to the message by pressing a key other than to disconnect the call.

Any similar reports to Action Fraud please
