Computer Scam BEWARE

14 June 2017

Recently a member of the EPAGRA  committee  received a phone call purporting to come from BT who informed them they had a problem with their internet access. They told the caller that their account was not in fact with BT but another internet provider.

The response was that BT owned the cables that provided the internet and if the member did not buy  a piece of software they would have their internet cut off and they would be blacklisted by the internet companies.

The committee member  very sensibly hung up and did not agree to anything.

Dear Ward Member,

I would like to bring to your attention that at present due to the improving weather we are experience a rise in artifice burglaries.  On this occasion unknown males are attending the home address of our venerable elderly victims who mostly live on their own stating that they are doing work at the neighbouring property and require access to their garden in order to carry out the works, or the unknown males are persuading them that they had an appointment for that day to attend and carry out works in the garden.  If access is granted whilst one of the males is showing the resident what work they will be doing the other males they are in company with are entering the property and stealing any cash and jewellery they can find.

Can I please ask that you remain extra vigilant and should you know any elderly or vulnerable people could you please look out for them so that we can try to ensure that nobody else falls for this scam.

Lastly could I please ask that should you receive any leaflets regarding tree surgery  through your door could you please forward them to myself so that I can look into the company to ensure that they are legitimate.

Many Thanks in advance for your assistance.  Should you have any questions then please do not hesitate in contacting me.

Protect your mobile phone for free and register it on www.immobilise.com
  • Ensure you keep a record of your phone’s IMEI number in case your phone is stolen.
  • This is a 15 digit unique number which can be obtained by pressing *#06#. Some products may have this on the device or on the original packaging. You will need this information if your phone is lost or stolen.
  • Register your phone for free on www.Immobilise.com. This helps Police to identify you as the rightful owner and return your handset to you if lost or stolen.
  • Use security or PIN locks to protect your data and prevent the phone being used if stolen.
  • When not in use, never leave your phone unattended in a public place or vehicle.
  • Take particular care of your phone at bars, cafes, coffee-shops, restaurants and music venues – thieves are known to target these venues.
  • If using your phone in public, stay alert and be aware of what’s going on around you.
  • Avoid using your mobile phone in public at night. If you do have to use your phone, try to find an area that’s well-lit. Avoid getting your phone out at train stations and bus stops as these are areas that thieves target.
  • Never reply to spam messages you may receive over SMS or Bluetooth, even to text ‘STOP’.
  • Consider installing a tracker application on your Smartphone, it could help trace your device if stolen. If your device is stolen, act quickly – inform the Police and tell them you have a tracker app installed
