Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
FIRST: AN ACTION FRAUD CASE JUST REPORTED TO US:
On Saturday 12th December, the aggrieved received multiple telephone calls from someone purporting to be from Amazon Prime.
They said she was behind with monthly payments and there was £80 per outstanding on her account.
To try and sort this out, they asked for access to her laptop and she typed in some code, to let them proxy her hard drive. There are no more details at this time to find out exactly what happened.
NEVER – NEVER – NEVER – grant anyone remote access to your computer. If anyone asks you to type in some code and press enter – DON’T DO IT – PUT THE PHONE DOWN, FIND A NUMBER FOR THAT ORGANISATION AND CALL THEM.
NEVER USE A NUMBER THEY HAVE GIVEN YOU – THAT WILL SIMPLY GO THROUGH TO AN ACCOMPLICE.

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
The lockdown has resulted in many neighbourhoods drawing closer together in supporting local residents with needs, and in neighbours spending a lot more time talking to each other over fences or across the road. This has improved community spirit no end, and a great way to keep this spirit alive is for residents to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or start up a new scheme if there is not already one covering their respective street.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about looking out the window and being alert for any crime in the neighbourhood, it is much more than that. It serves as a valuable resource for crime prevention, in supporting the Police with things such as local home security surveys, installing crime prevention aids in homes for the vulnerable and elderly especially, helping those vulnerable and elderly residents with any other needs, and in drawing residents together in supporting one another.
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents and serves as a means to highlight local issues relating to crime and residents in need. New NHW schemes are continuously being set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
To search for your nearest NHW scheme, or to set up a new scheme, visit www.ourwatch.org.uk and enter your postcode.
For any questions relating to Neighbourhood Watch please contact the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association at firstname.lastname@example.org
