Football ticket scam

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) has recently received an influx of reports that fraudsters are targeting the public, via social media, in relation to football tickets.

Fraudsters are posting pictures or statuses online telling members of the public to contact them via Direct Message for football tickets. This then leads to a mobile messaging conversation. During the conversation, bank details are provided by the suspect so that the tickets can be purchased.

After the victim has paid for the ticket the fraudster blocks them to stop further conversation, leaving victims without the tickets and out of pocket.

Protect yourself:

  • Check the security of the website and validity of the post
  • Avoid taking the conversation offline to private messages
  • When purchasing any products over the internet always try to make the payment via PayPal or a credit card where you have some sort of payment cover

If you, or anyone you know, have been affected by this fraud or any other scam, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk.

EDL and counter-demonstrations in High Wycombe

A comprehensive operation is planned to police the EDL and counter demonstrations in High Wycombe tomorrow, Saturday 9 April.

TVP header

In order to help the police facilitate a peaceful protest, the use of Section 60AA of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 has been authorised. This power enables police officers to require a person to remove any item, which the officer believes that person is wearing wholly or mainly for the purpose of concealing their identity.

Anyone failing to comply with this request will be committing a criminal offence.

Thames Valley Police wishes to assure those involved or affected by the protests that our aim remains to maximise the safety of all those involved and facilitate the right to protest peacefully  whilst  minimising disruption.

Thames Valley Police Alert

Timeshare Recovery Fraud

The following has just been released by Thames Valley Police. 

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) is warning people of the dangers of Recovery Room fraudsters targeting former victims of Timeshare fraud.  Recovery Room Fraud refers to a scam whereby fraudsters contact the victims of previous frauds, often by way of cold calling them, and claim to be able to recover previously lost funds. In July 2014 the Financial Services Authority (FSA) estimated that 30% of people who had lost money through Investment fraud would also fall victim to a Recovery Room fraud.

When Recovery Room fraudsters target victims of timeshare frauds they usually claim to be a legal professional or a representative of a government agency (normally within the country where the original timeshare property was based) in order to legitimise the scam.  Continue reading Thames Valley Police Alert
