Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


FIRST:  ANOTHER SCAM INCIDENT IN A SUPERMARKET CAR PARK:

22/1  Sunday King Edward Court.  The aggrieved was shopping in Windsor. She paid for her shopping and used a cashpoint. She also had an issue with her Debit card when paying for the parking ticket.  She went to her car and was about to pull away, when she saw two men standing there.  One of the men tapped on the window and told her that someone had damaged the rear of her car.  He said it looked like someone had hit her car with a trolley. He is described as Asian, 5'4 to 5'5 tall, slim build, in his 30s or 40s, short black hair, stubbly beard with a thicker moustache.  He was wearing a beige jacket, which was zipped up.

He looked directly at her and said, 'YOU NEED TO BE MORE CAREFUL'. When she got back into the car about 5 minutes later, she realised that her purse and contents were missing.

The offenders have then managed to take £4,000 from her account.  The bank have confirmed that the offenders attempted to use the card fraudulently in Slough, later that day. The ban have also confirmed that the offenders have transferred money from a savings account, into the current and have then taken the money from there.

The offenders have then withdrawn £950.  Apparently a further £2000 was taken.

Contact will be made with the bank, to establish how the fraudulent transactions were made.

PLEASE BE ON YOUR GUARD, WE HAVE NOW HAD SEVERAL OF THESE SCAM INCIDENTS IN OUR SUPERMARKET CAR PARKS.

NEXT:  The man going door to door offering to buy unwanted gold and jewellery is still in the area:

Last week male in 20's was leaflet dropping.  An hour later, a man in his 50's knocked on the front door asking for unwanted gold / silver.
On Monday the 24th at 11.10 a.m. he knocked on door again- asking for gold and silver again.  My elderly father spoke to him and went to get 2 gold coins he had.  He showed the coins to the man and he appeared very interested.  He said he was going to his van to get his valuation book and would be back shortly - but he hasn’t returned.

PLEASE DO NOT DEAL WITH ANYONE WHO COLD CALLS AT THE DOOR.

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH


Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
·       help to make our community safer?
·       improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
·       help the Police to reduce local crime?
·       make our own home security better?
 
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.
Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including  having  free  home  security  surveys  conducted  by  a  local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise  on  optimum  ways  to  safeguard  against  crime  and  improve personal and household security
But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on contact@windsorascotnhwa.org.uk and we will be delighted to assist.
