More Courier Fraud News #1

Apologies for being a bit slow with this one as many of you will have already have seen at least some elements of this e-mail by now from other sources. I just thought it worth collating a few things in one place for you to share across your local networks to keep as many people aware and safe from the threat of ‘courier fraud’.
If you are signed up to eCops you will have already received the message below from Cambridgeshire Constabulary (see after my signature) but I also wanted to share an excellent YouTube video here produced by the Metropolitan Police which does a nice job of illustrating how courier fraud and other impersonation fraud works. There is also a recent article in the BBC News which gives a victim account of the devastation caused by courier fraud.

I hope this information is useful to you share onwards within your community. The more people are aware of these despicable practices, the more resilient our communities will be to them.
Thank you very much,
