Inland Revenue Scam Alert

Recently there have been a rash of cold calls purporting to be from HMRC, claiming that the recipient has failed to pay sufficient income tax and that a warrant has been sworn out for their arrest.

To prevent being arrested the recipient has to purchase a quantity of prepaid cards i.e. Itunes or  Steam cards from a specific outlet for the outstanding amount and they will be contacted for the code number on the back of the card.

I am aware of a lady receiving such a call, purchasing £500 worth of such cards and after handing over the code numbers there was a demand for a further £500 worth of cards.

HMRC – The Tax Office – will NEVER cold call you at all for any reason.

Should you receive such a call, put the phone down and report it to the Police on 101.

Please bring this matter to the attention to all your members particularly the elderly and those who live on their own.

Be very suspicious of any call which states that money is owed and can be paid off by purchasing pre-paid vouchers such as Itunes, UK Cash vouchers or Western Union Payments. Please report all and any such calls to the Police.

We have also seen via CCTV that offenders are also ‘checking’ doors of vehicles parked on driveways which are easily accessible from the pavement/roadway.

Always lock you vehicle and take that extra second to check that it is actually locked. Never leave valuable items in the vehicle such as wallets and hand bags containing bank cards which can easily be used via the tap and pay method.

If you see someone tampering with your car please report it at the time so that the Police can attend and investigate and check out persons in the area etc.

When leaving you house empty during the day consider the use of a timer switch attached to a radio or to a light during the evenings to give the impression that there is someone at home. Remember that a light left on in the hall or on the stairs only will indicate that the house is empty as no one sits in the hall for hours on end.

Overnight of the 18th 19th March a car with keyless entry was entered in Libertus Road St Marks. The vehicle was searched but nothing was stolen. It is important to make sure such keys, when in the house, are far enough away from the vehicle to prevent the door locks and ignition from working

 

Again overnight of the 18th 19th March a car in Eldorado Road Lansdown was entered by unknown means with a coat, scarf and a set of keys being stolen.

 Overnight of the 19th 20th March an insecure  car in Barton Close, Charlton Kings was entered and searched, not known what was stolen at this time.

During the same time frame another vehicle in Barton Close was entered and searched but nothing reported as stolen at this time. The vehicle had keyless entry etc.

 It is important for vehicles with keyless entry and ignition to check to see if the vehicle can still be entered when the keys are in the house in their normal place. Taking the keys to the bedroom does not always prevent a signal from the keys reaching the car.

Soft pouches are available to hold keys which will prevent the signal from the keys reaching the vehicle.
