Sent from one of my members.

Hi Ted
Today I received an automated call, claiming to be from the fraud dept of my bank. The message said £600 had been withdrawn using my visa card. I realise this is a scam call, but if it is doing the rounds locally, there’s no harm in reminding people not to respond. The number calling was 01565 208736.
(These phone number are often changed regularly)

Keep Your Money Safe – The Latest Frauds in Sussex and Surrey

Each month we see many incidents of fraudsters targeting our residents in an attempt to defraud them. We’re working hard to prevent this and support vulnerable victims of fraud or scams. By following our tips and encouraging family, friends and colleagues to do so too, you can reduce the risk of becoming a victim.

Identities stolen to order mobile phones

An elderly man from East Surrey received a knock on the door from a delivery driver with a mobile phone in his name which he had not ordered.
The man took the parcel in to inspect and then received a call saying that the phone had been delivered to the wrong address and someone would come to collect it.
Quite rightly suspicious, the gentleman called the police and it became clear his identity had been used by criminals to buy the phone.
We have seen this type of fraud in both of our counties, with victims’ identities being used to buy goods and their addresses used for delivery.

Quick support app scam

A man was contacted on the phone, out of the blue, by someone who advised him to download an app called ‘Quick Support’ via the App Store. The caller said this was to remove a global virus affecting mobile phones. The caller kept the man on the phone for over an hour and a half, during which he did download the app. After this, the caller persistently asked the man to call his bank to see if any money had been taken from his accounts because this virus.
Fortunately the victim was suspicious and knew the tricks scammers use such as spoofing official phone numbers and keeping the phone line open at their end to pretend to be the bank, and no crime was committed in this case.
It’s wise to assume any call out of the blue from someone you don’t know could be a fraudster, and the safest thing to do is put down the phone.

Police impersonation frauds

It’s great to hear that more and more people like the man in our last example can spot the tricks and lies that fraudsters employ to lure us in.
But sadly we do continue to hear that fraudsters are telephoning elderly and vulnerable people and persuading them to part with their money, credit cards or personal details by masquerading as police officers. Over the last month we’ve heard that criminals have claimed to be DC Simmonds from the Metropolitan Police or DC Martin Rose from Surrey Police.
As you’ll know from this newsletter, this is an ongoing issue. We have a really effective scheme across both counties to protect people once they’ve been preyed on by criminals in this way, but we need to stop if before it happens and the best way of doing that is to simply hang up the phone. There are then various preventative measures you can take, such as changing your phone number or getting a call blocking device for your phone.
PPI (Payment protection insurance) frauds
We’ve noticed fraudsters calling people saying they are owed a PPI refund of several thousand pounds, but that in order to release the refund they need to pay an upfront ‘admin’ fee.
Scammers often ask people to make the payment by purchasing a voucher – such as Amazon gift cards or a Paysafe card – and calling them back to give the voucher code numbers. This helps them claim the money without it being traced.

Keep your money safe

Be suspicious of unexpected calls, especially if you’re asked to make an upfront payment or to give your bank account details.
Avoid making a payment to a company or person that contacts you out of the blue, especially if you’re asked to purchase a voucher, pay directly into a bank account or use a money transfer company.
Look for signs that a phone call, text message or email may not be genuine, such as a mobile or overseas phone number, or an email address from a hotmail or gmail account. Scam emails and letters often contain spelling mistakes and poor grammar.

How you can help us If you or someone you know is vulnerable and has been a victim of fraud call:
Surrey Police on 101 or visit www.surrey.police.uk Sussex Police on 101 or visit www.sussex.police.uk
Report fraud or attempted fraud, by contacting Action Fraud at http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or call 0300 123 204

There’s some really comprehensive advice on avoiding becoming a victim of identity theft on Action Fraud’s website.

Good morning to you all. Please find below some useful information sent to me by one of my coordinators in Stonegate that you might find helpful.
Click on the links to find the info.
………………………………………………………………………….Hello Ted
How are you?
A couple of things I want to run by you.
I don’t know whether this information will be of help to your members but some thoughts regarding unwanted phone calls and scams.
♦ Lots of information here from Citizens Advice.

Stop getting nuisance calls and texts

Action to take to stop getting nuisance calls and text messages


♦ Telephone Preference Service  although this is not 100% reliable, especially against calls routed from overseas.

TPS

Telephone Preference Service.


Increasingly scammers are using either mobile numbers or a landline number shows, leading people to answer rather than ignore a withheld number.
♦ For people who have use of the internet, there are various sites where you can input the caller’s number and see if it’s been identified – you can then either warn others or just block it from calling you again.
This is the site I use.

Who called me? | Free Reverse Phone Lookup

Received a call from unknown phone number. Use this FREE reverse phone directory to find out who called you!


♦ There are also landline handsets which claim to block nuisance callers, but to be honest, these organisations change numbers so often they still get through.
Also, can I ask you to keep a particular look out for crime reports in the Ticehurst and Stonegate area please.
There is a white transit van with occupants described as ginger haired, slight build and a heavily tattooed hand, plus a younger guy with thick, dark hair and eyebrows. They are being seen a lot around here and it seems they’re either attempting break-ins or just casing the area, Wadhurst, Cousley Wood and possibly Heathfield too.

Please note this email sent to me the other day.
…………………………………………………………….On Wednesday this week my 84 year old mum received about a dozen silent phone calls from various numbers. Some started with 01392 01395 01398 but there were others too which she wrote down. Then later in the same day she got a call from a man saying he can stop all the nuisance calls she’s been receiving recently for a monthly fee and he tried to get her to give her credit card and bank details. Luckily she’s not that stupid and told him where to go but it left her really shaken up.

Protect your phone

 

Here you can find out how to protect yourself from being a victim of mobile theft and steps that will help if your phone is stolen.

Don’t leave your phone, iPad, tablet or camera unattended, out of your sight or left on a table – thieves can grab a phone from a table in seconds.

Always be aware of your mobile and your whereabouts and act accordingly. And when you’ve finished using it, put it away.

Ensure you retain a record of your phone’s IMEI number. This is a 15-digit unique number which can be obtained by keying in *#06#. You need this information if the phone is lost or stolen. And don’t keep a note of it on your phone as it defeats the object.

Use your device’s security features, apps or PIN locking mechanisms to protect your data and prevent the phone being used if stolen.

Immobilise it. Register for free on an accredited mobile phone database such as ImmobiliseExternal Link. This helps police to identify you as the rightful owner.

Track it. Consider installing a tracker app on your smartphone. They’re readily available online. If your mobile’s ever stolen, act promptly.………………………………………………………………………………

 

Secure your shed or garage

It’s strange how most people don’t secure their shed or garage in the same way they do their homes. People often end up using a flimsy lock or padlock to protect the contents – whether it’s a car, bike or lawnmower. The fact is, a burglar will usually try a shed or garage first because they can find the tools they need to get into the house.

Shed and outbuilding security: first steps

First off, check that your insurance covers the contents of your shed or outbuildings from theft.

Think like a thief

Take a look at your shed and consider how you would break in. It’s worth having a good padlock on the door with no exposed screws. Pay attention to hinges, as these are sometimes easily removable. If you have windows then these could be vulnerable unless they’re secured with wire mesh or grills. And always keep it locked .

Alarm it

Consider a battery-operated shed alarm. They look low key but they respond to movement or door contact with an extremely loud siren.

Lock it, hide it or mark it

Don’t give them the opportunity or the tools to commit a crime. Lock everything away securely. Tools can be locked inside a locker or box or secured with a chain.

Secure your bike to the ground or a lockable stand within a locked shed or garage. Visit Sold SecureExternal Link to search for ground anchors and other locks designed to fix to floors and walls.

It’s always worth draping an old sheet or blanket over the top of mowers or bikes to keep them covered from view.Invest in a garage door stop.

Although it might sound like stating the obvious, never leave your garage or shed door unlocked if you’re not around.

Property marking your items is advisable and some tools can be painted with your name or postcode. Forensic marking is also an option and you can register some items on the Immobilise website for free. For more information visit ImmobiliseExternal Link and our detailed page on property marking.

Mark your property to deter burglars | Sussex Police

Great tips on how to make your personal belongings less attractive to burglars plus actions you can take to make…

The top five most common items stolen from sheds

  1. Bikes
  2. Mowers
  3. Sports equipment
  4. Power tools
  5. Garden tools

 

……………………………………………………………………………

 

 

There has been a rise in reported thefts from vehicles. Please remember to remove personal belongings and make sure you lock up securely when you leave your car.

M23 Roadworks – Update 27 September

Roadworks – Pett Road: 23 September – 2 October

Residents in Pett may have already received this notification from East Sussex Highways about roadworks and road closure to through traffic in Pett Road from 7pm-4am from Monday 23 September until Wednesday 2 October. Pett Parish Council has received no prior notice of these works. Apparently residents will be able to access their homes although ‘there may be delays’.

The map is not easy to read but it appears that the area affected is from the bottom of Chick Hill all the way up Pett Road/Friars Hill to the junction of Friars Hill and the A259 by the White Hart.

If any further information is received it will be published on Pett on the Net and the Pett Facebook page.

Leave a Light On

Don’t let burglars know you are not home.
Once it gets dark, make sure you leave a light on.
Stay secure – the nights are drawing in and autumn is now well and truly here.
Here are some home security tips – do you pass the burglary prevention test?

Daily security

Keep all wallets,  purses, credit cards and car keys out of sight and out of reach.

If you leave your house empty, even if you are in the back garden, lock all the doors and windows.

An intruder alarm can be an effective deterrent against burglars, seek advice to ensure it is the most suitable for your needs.

Make it a habit to mark your valuables by using your postcode and house number or name.

Some articles are unsuitable for marking so photograph them next to a ruler.

Register your property at www.immobilise.com

After dark

Leave some lights on if it will be dark before you get home.

When you go out in the evening, always leave a light on in a room that cannot be peered into from the road.

Fit security lighting – either dusk to dawn energy efficient lighting that will come on automatically as dusk sets in, or infrared activated lighting which draws attention to movement.

Front door security 

Don’t let anyone into your home that you don’t know. Always ask for identification – official visitors won’t mind being asked for ID.

Fit a door chain or bar, and if you have a solid front door, a wide angle door viewer.

In the garden

Ensure gates or access to the rear of the house are locked and secure.

Trim overgrown plants – don’t give burglars a hiding place.

Secure garden tools and ladders in a locked shed or garage to prevent them being used to break into your home.

The best defence  against burglary is prevention.

For more advice on crime prevention  visit www.sussex.police.uk

In an emergency, or if you see a crime in progress always dial 999.

Neighbourhood Watch and Pett Parish Council Meeting: 17 September

Prior to the meeting of Pett Parish Council on 17 September, Ted Kemp (Chairman) (Chairman@rothernhw.co.uk) and Chris Ashford, Treasurer, of Rother Neighbourhood Watch gave a presentation to local residents. Ted and Chris outlined the role Neighbourhood Watch plays in the community and gave details of how to become a member. You can join by visiting www.rothernw.co.uk

Although individuals can join without there being local (unpaid) Co-ordinators, it would be very helpful if there were at least one or ideally more Co-ordinators for Pett and Pett Level. Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators have to be Police checked before they can start work. If you are interested in becoming a Co-ordinator, please contact Tim Rothwell in the first instance at tim.rothwell@pettnet.org.uk

Tim is acting as the Communications Facilitator for Pett Parish Council in respect of Neighbourhood Watch.

More details on the presentation, and other issues relating to the current work of Pett Parish Council can be read in the September report of the Chair of the Parish Council, David Penfold, here

 

 

Operation Sceptre – Targeting Knives and Knife Crime In Sussex

The campaign to take and keep knives off Sussex streets continues with a second specific focused week of activities.
Operation Sceptre running between September 16-20, supports the work Sussex Police carry out all year round to ensure residents are safe from knife crime in their communities.
Originally started by the Metropolitan Police Service, Operation Sceptre is a twice-yearly run campaign that aims to tackle the danger that knife crime poses by educating those most at risk and carrying out proactive work that takes knives off our streets.
Inspector Simon Burroughs said: “We are keenly aware of how much focus there is on knife crime at the moment and in recent weeks, we have had incidents that have led to people being injured, sometimes seriously. We now need everyone to help in keeping our county safe.
“Operation Sceptre gives us a chance to talk about knife crime in a realistic and open fashion: we want to give young people the chance to stay safe, we do not want to demonise them. It is imperative we remind them they have choices in life, and that help is out there if they do not feel safe.
“Talk to the young people in your life, drop off your dangerous and unwanted blades to our knife amnesty bins and if you need to talk to someone anonymously, Crimestoppers can be reached on 0800 555 111. As always, you can report crime online or via 101. In an emergency, always call 999.”
As well as the educational side, targeted patrols will take place across the county, including at transport hubs with officers working alongside British Transport Police colleagues. Other prioritised activity includes target stop and search, particularly against known habitual knife carriers, and test purchase operations.
There is also a knife amnesty where people are encouraged to drop off their dangerous or unwanted knives and blades at police stations across Sussex. These amnesty bins are in place all year round, and there will be no consequences if weapons are disposed of safely here. Knife amnesty bins are located at the following stations: Worthing (Chatsworth Road), Shoreham, Chichester, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, Midhurst, Horsham, Crawley, Eastbourne, Lewes, Seaford, Newhaven, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, East Grinstead, Hastings, Bexhill, Battle, Rye, Hailsham, Uckfield, Crowborough and Brighton.
Test purchasing will be carried out throughout Sussex, where officers, PCSOs and cadets will mystery shop to see which premises allow them to buy knives without their age being asked for.
The week is being supported by Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne. She said: “Getting killed, having life changing injuries or a prison sentence because of knife crime are not choices anybody would rationally make. However, we are still seeing far too many young people putting themselves at risk by carrying a knife.
“This is why our Reboot programme is working across Sussex to tackle serious violence at its earliest stages and is already providing invaluable support to nearly 400 vulnerable young people.
“As part of this we are educating them on the dangers of criminality and how to recognise when they are being exploited. By doing so, I hope to stop young people having their lives ruined by knife crime or any other form of criminality.”
