Fraud

Fraud, including Internet scams and phishing are still very prevalent. Do not click on any links or open any attachments within e mails which you do not know where they come from irrespective of the promise of a prize/cash etc.
Make sure that your virus protection is up to date as this will stop the majority scams and phishing e mails, but not 100% so always be wary of e mails from someone you do not know.

Any emails received purporting to have hacked into your system and demanding money not to forward photos or sites that it is alleged that you have visited must be reported to the police and forwarded to report@phishing.gov.uk    The email can then be deleted. Do not make any attempt to make any payments.

Be very wary of any e mail stating that a payment wasn’t received (HMRC, utility companies, TV Licensing etc.), or from a supplier claiming to change bank payment details. Always make a check by phone to ascertain if the lack of payment or change of details are valid and if not report the matter to the police.
 
Always make sure that your house and car are secure when you leave it and take that extra second to make sure they are actually locked, and in relation to houses if you are out in the garden or working upstairs etc.

If you have any information on the above incidents or the property stolen or have received any such emails and have not reported them please contact the Police on 101 or use the following link :-
https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/soh/something-youve-seen-or-heard/ using the above incident number.

Any and all information can be given anonymously through Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111
