Cycle Security

Over the past 3 months the sale of road bikes, mountain bikes and electric bikes has risen considerably, unfortunately so have the reported thefts of such cycles.

 With bikes having carbon fibre frames and electric cycles costing well in excess of £1000, they must not be left unattended or unsecured, use high strength locks and chains to secure them to cycle racks and/or street furniture.

 We are aware of reports of cyclists being followed from mountain biking areas and cycling events to their home address and cycles subsequently being stolen, be aware if you are being followed and report any suspicious activity to the Police.

Bikes stored in garden sheds and garages must be subject to secondary security such as a heavy duty chain bolted to the frame of the building or to a concrete floor.

Use locks to BS Standard 3621 or hardened padlocks on doors. Approved locks and chains can be found at www.soldsecure.com  

Take photos of your bike and keep a record of the make, model and serial number.

 Consider registering your bike on the National Cycle Data Base and having it security marked with its own identifying number which allows it to be returned to the owner if stolen and recovered. For the more expensive bikes tracker devices are available for less than £50 which allows a stolen cycle to be located in real time.

On Saturday 11th July 2020 from 10am – 2pm Neighbourhood Watch and Crime Prevention Officers will be carrying out a FREE cycle security marking session at Grange Field (By The Library) Charlton Kings GL53 8AR, cycles will also be registered on the National Cycle Data Base again FREE of charge, everyone is welcome and I look forward to seeing you there.

Door to Door Salesman  -  Nottingham Knockers

Recently we have had a number of reports from all areas in Cheltenham that there have been groups of door to door salesman knocking on doors offering tea towels, dish cloths etc. for sale.

They are bused in on mass in a van and then attempt to sell their wares by knocking on doors, and are known colloquially as ‘Nottingham Knockers’ as they come from out of the county and a lot of the time from that area. They have various stories to tell i.e. just out of prison/ex serviceman getting back on their feet etc. etc. in an effort to make you feel sorry for them and but their products

 Legally they must be in possession of a ‘Pedlars Certificate’ which must be signed by the Police for the area in which they live and they must produce it if asked.

 It is generally suspected that they are responsible for burglaries etc. but the actual proof of this is very thin if any at all; but it has been found that many such persons have previous convictions for various offences.

 It is not rude to say No and shut the door on these people, in fact there is no requirement for you to answer the door at all to them. A ‘No Cold Caller’ sticker on your letter box may have the desired effect, available from your Neighbourhood Watch Officer.

We have had a number of calls this week that such persons have been  active in a number of areas in Cheltenham and yesterday Police attended a report of 4 such persons in Prestbury and checked them out with further enquiries to be made.

I would ask that if you get any such callers you report it in via 101 as we would like to know that they are about, but if they are getting aggressive with you, should you not wish to purchase any of their overpriced items, then please call 999 and the Police will attend and check them out etc. and deal as necessary.

An alternative to 101 (as we appreciate that it can take time to get a reply) is to report the matter on line at:- https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/soh/something-youve-seen-or-heard/ but this is not to be used in an emergency such as someone becoming aggressive – dial 999.

With the reduction in crime over the past weeks, frauds, scams and phishing attempts are increasing.  Scams include calls made by persons claiming to be from the Police or Bank, stating that there are problems with your bank account and instructing you to transfer your money into ‘safe account’

Similar ones are from HMRC (Income Tax) claiming that you owe unpaid tax and that you will be arrested unless paid straight away, also from Utility Companies and T.V. Licensing stating that standing orders have been missed and requesting bank details to re-instate payments.

 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.

 When buying on line only use recognise payments sites such as Pay Pal or Ebay and if using bank transfers check that the account name is the same as the seller.

 Always lock your house and vehicle when you leave it and take the extra second to make sure that they are actually secured.

Crime Prevention Information  -  Do’s and Don’ts

Burglary


Nearly 200 Houses in Cheltenham broken into this year 

Houses left unlocked with windows open and keys in locks 

Always make sure that you house is locked securely when you leave it, this includes if you are working in the garden/tool shed etc.

Ensure windows are shut and locked if available and remove keys from window and door locks close to glass to prevent the glass being smashed, reaching through and using the keys to release the window/door.

 

Wherever possible prevent access to the rear of the property by locking side gates, making sure that they are high enough and not easy to climb over. Similarly put wheelie bins out of sight so they can’t be used as a ladder to climb over gates or onto flat roofs.

 

Protect vulnerable areas such as patio doors/windows with security movement sensor lights and/or CCTV. Also consider video door bells and internal movement sensor CCTV cameras linked to the internet.

 

Vehicle Crime

Over 250 cars entered and/or stolen in Cheltenham this year already

Vehicle Routinely Left Unlocked and Keys Vulnerable

Always lock your vehicle when you leave it and take that extra second to make sure that it is actually secured. Do not leave valuable property in unattended vehicles such as wallets and handbags containing bank cards which can be used by the thief with no further security checks. Smart phones, note books and lap tops contain a wealth of personal information which is of great use to the thief and fraudster.

Vehicles which have a keyless entry system are particularly vulnerable. Most drivers park on driveways close to the house, go in and put the keys on a hook, in a bowl or on a shelf just inside the door. If the keys are too close to the car it will still open and if very close, the car will start and drive away. To check put your keys where you normally do and go back to your car and see if you can open it, if you can the keys are too close.

When the keys are not in use they must be kept secure in such a situation whereby they are prevented from communicating with the vehicles i.e. in a tin box such as a biscuit tin or safe or similar, in a purpose produce signal blocker pouch (available from Neighbourhood Watch) The fridge is not a good idea as the cold will affect the batteries and render the key unusable. Beware about taking keys to bed as if the bedroom overlooks the driveway/car the car may still open.

High end/valuable vehicles – recently it has become apparent that break ins are being carried out just to find keys to valuable cars on the driveway because with the amount of security in current vehicles it is easier to steal a car by using the keys than any other method. In such cases car keys must not be left just inside the front door as per above, but kept away in a secure location and out of sight.

Phishing/Scam E Mails

Over 200 Reports of Fraud and Internet Phishing in

Cheltenham so far this year

Recently there have been a rash of phishing/scam e mails where the victim receives an e mail with an old password in the subject line and a demand for money in the form of bitcoin with a threat to publish recordings of what is alleged that you have been viewing on line. Do not click on any links or open any attachments on suspicious emails.

Action Fraud confirms that they have received over 9000 reports of these “sextortion” emails in April in the UK.  See the following link to their page below for more information:

https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/alert/fraudsters-send-victims-own-passwords-in-sextortion-scam

Action Fraud are now advising that people receiving these emails (where there is no financial loss) should forward them to report@phishing.gov.uk and then delete them.  The emails are being investigated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).  Like us, the NCSC are focusing on a PROTECT response.  They are identifying the sources of the emails, and shutting them down.  The initiative was launched on 21/04/20 and the NCSC removed 395 phishing sites within the first week. 

If you receive such an email please report it to the Police via 101, forward it to the above link and then delete it.

Fraud

With burglaries and thefts from vehicles reducing, fraud is the current problem with a number of incidents being reported,

See the following from Action Fraud :-

Fraudsters take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to commit Pet Fraud within the online sale of animals.

524 reports were made to Action Fraud in April 2020 in relation to Pet Fraud, with the total loss of £229,691. This is nearly six times as many reports as in April 2019.

The fraudster will advertise puppies and kittens for sale on social media platforms and selling platforms, including websites dedicated to pet sale. The victim will be asked to pay a deposit to secure the purchase. The fraudster will not let the pet be collected in person due to the lockdown, and will insist on shipping the pet to the victim’s address. After the initial payment has been made, more funds will be requested to cover delivery costs, pet insurance or vaccinations. Each time the funds are sent another request will come.

Similar events involve jewellery (or any other item) being sold over the internet, money is paid and no goods are received.

Any payment should only be made when you have either seen the relevant item or are happy that it exists.

Wherever possible use recognised payment methods such as Pay Pall or through well-known sites such as Ebay or Airbnb and be suspicious of requests to make transactions outside such organisations.

Be wary of requests for payment of transportation and insurance costs before any items are delivered prior to any final payment.

Also be wary of making payments to anonymous bank accounts or accounts where the name does not match the person you are detailing with.

Scam calls and e mails can also claim to be from Amazon, HMRC (Income Tax), or any of the Utility Companies to name just a few, claiming that a payment has been missed and to make payment  there and then by giving your bank details. Do NOT respond to any of these messages.

If you have received any such emails and have not reported them please contact the Police on 101 or use the following link :-

Fraud

Over the last week there have been a number of incidents of fraud whereby the victim has been persuaded to make payments before receiving items purchased, in particular down payments over the internet and facebook which has resulted in no goods being received.

Any payment should only be made when you have either seen the relevant item or are happy that it exists.

Wherever possible use recognised payment methods such as Pay Pall or through well-known sites such as Ebay or Airbnb and be suspicious of requests to make transactions outside such organisations.

Cycle Security Marking Session.

A cycle security marking session will take place in front of Cheltenham General Hospital on Sandford Road, Cheltenham on Friday 22nd November 2019 from 10am until 3pm.

 Each bike marked will be added to the National Bike Register at BikeRegistry.com and this will be FREE of charge on the day.

Security marking of cycles is a positive and proven crime prevention method and ensures that if the cycle is stolen the chances of it be returned to the rightful owner are greatly increased.

Everyone is welcome to come along to this event.

If you are thinking about giving a cycle as a Christmas present or even hopeful that Santa might be bringing one for you, there is to be a Cycle Security Marking Session in association with Up Hatherley Parish Council at Up Hatherley Village Hall, Cold Pool Lane Up Hatherley on Saturday 25th January 2020 from 9.30am to 1.30pm where again all cycles marked will be added to the National Bike Register and again this will be FREE of charge on the day.

 This is the end of the message and I look forward to seeing you on either of the dates.

Fraud Alert

 

Recently there have been a number of fraudulent phone calls targeting elderly residents in the Cheltenham area.

 

A number of elderly people have reported being contacted by fraudsters claiming to be from TSB or Lloyds banks who stated that they need to replace the person’s bank card to a newer style.

 

The fraudster will then claim that the card needs to be delivered to the person’s home address and that in order for them to do this, they will require the pin of the old card to transfer it to the new card.

 

One incident saw the caller loose a large amount of money and I would like to remind you that your bank or police will never ask you to provide your personal details or pin number over the phone.

 

Please ask to see the callers warrant card/ID if you ever have any suspicions about their identity.

 

If you or a family member receives a call of this nature, please hang up immediately and report this by calling 101 or 999 if the incident is ongoing.

 

If possible we advise using a different phone or waiting five minutes to ensure that the call has been disconnected.

 

Advice from staying safe against scams and fraud can be found here: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/staying-safe/staying-safe-against-scams-or-fraud/

 

If you suspect that you may have been the victim of fraud please report this to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report-a-fraud-including-online-crime.

Volunteers Requested

On Saturday 15th June there is to be a Neighbourhood Watch promotional event in conjunction with the John Lewis Partnership in the John Lewis Store in Cheltenham High Street.

 The store has a ‘Discovery Room’ which is available to community groups where it is intended to hold a display to promote Neighbourhood Watch and Crime Prevention ideas and information.

The event will run from 10am until 4pm and to help direct shoppers/members of the public, it is proposed to have Neighbourhood Watch volunteers at the front doors and in the I.T./T.V. department advising of the event and directing customers to the Discovery Room where further details will be provided.

The intention is to make customers aware of Neighbourhood Watch Schemes running in their areas and the benefits of joining a local scheme and if no scheme is in place, how to set up and run a scheme with the support of the Association etc. Also the best ways of forensically marking your property.

To help run this event I am asking for volunteers to help direct/advise customers of the event at the front of the store and in the I.T. Department as well as Coordinators to explain how they run a scheme and give information in the Discovery Room.  

 If you are willing to volunteer and provide support for this event for up to 2 hrs within the period of 10am to 4pm please contact me by replying to this message, or e mail me at simon.bailey@gloucestershire.pnn.police.uk or by leaving me a message on my direct line of 01452 754630. Please leave your name and contact details and the time period you would be willing to attend.

 I will make contact with all volunteers when I have numbers and times available.
