Beware of websites promising cash for your phone

Beware of websites promising cash for your phone

Posted Sunday 19 Aug 2018 14:59 PM

We have received reports of people using mobile-buying websites to sell their mobile phones, only to find that they have been scammed out of their money and their phone.

How it works
• The consumer contacts a trader through a mobile-buying website and provides the brand and make of the mobile they would like to sell.
• The trader sends a reasonable quote which the consumer accepts and the consumer sends their phone to the trader.
• The trader emails the consumer alleging there is internal damage/external scratches and reduces the offer to a minimal amount.
• The consumer refuses the offer and asks for their phone back.
• The trader will only return the phone if the consumer pays for postage which is a significant amount.
• Consumers who paid for postage never received their phone back; losing all their postage money and their phone.
Before using a mobile-buying company, take the following steps:
• Look for a green padlock in your browser's URL bar. Genuine websites will have a web URL that begins with https://
• Look out for spelling and punctuation errors. Often English is not the first language of scammers
• Read reviews on review websites and on social media
• Read the small print - find out how long you have to accept or reject a quote and whether you have to pay for your phone to be returned if you reject it.
• Check the company has published contact details, including a phone number and an address

ROAD WORKS STONE STREET JUNCTION WITH A20 NEWINGREEN
I would like to inform residents that the road works at the above location were a surprise to the Parish Council as well as the residents we had no prior notification.
I have contacted KCC who informed me that this was part of the Find@fix programme and they had to act almost immediately due to the road being in a dangerous state.
HOWEVER- the good news is that the junction should reopen at the end of today. I have also confirmed that Stage Coach will be informed to ensure the bus service is reinstated for the rest of the week

Your guide to crime prevention – Home and Garden Security

Protect your Garden

• Maintain hedges and fences to prevent unwanted visitors from entering your garden
• Close your garden gate and lock it from the inside
• Store bins and ladders carefully so they can’t be used as climbing aids
• Store tools and equipment somewhere secure after use so they don’t get stolen or used to break into your home
• Secure sheds and garages with suitable locks and consider fitting shed alarms and security lights
• Disable lawn mowers and other large machinery when not in use and chain items together or to a solid anchor point
• Security mark valuable items – taking photographs and recording details such as serial numbers and identifying marks can also help to identify items if they get lost or stolen.
• Consider registering valuables on a property database such as www. Immobilise. Com

Warning over shed burglaries in Dymchurch, Hythe and New Romney


Kent Police is advising residents of Dymchurch, Hythe and New Romney to keep their garden sheds secure after reported break-ins.

Sheds and garages are reported to have been targeted between Tuesday 20 March and Wednesday 4 April 2018 in the following places:

• Burmash Road, Hythe between midnight and midday on 4 April where a Makita jigsaw was stolen.

Inspector Julien Lawton from the Community Safety Unit said: ‘Whilst we carry out our enquiries into these incidents we would urge all residents to check their sheds are secure, especially if they contain high value equipment.

‘Alarms, security lights and padlocks will all help to deter opportunistic thieves. However, should anyone fall victim to a burglary please call us immediately.

‘Anyone who doesn’t have their property security marked can seek advice from their local Police Community Support Officer (PCSO). ’

Anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in these areas or who has information that could assist with enquiries is urged to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting reference number ZY/017192/18. Alternatively, contact Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

NEW BANKING SCAM

NEW BANKING SCAM

Posted Tuesday 27 Mar 2018 13:01 PM

The scammers are ringing generally vulnerable people stating that they are from Greater Manchester Police (or any other Police Force) and that their bank/credit cards have been cloned to purchase high values items.

They then provide a number for the person to ring back with their bank details.

As usual with this type of call it is a well-rehearsed scam attempt.

Please be wary of any such calls and pass the message to anyone who you may believe would be vulnerable to these unscrupulous fraudsters.

As always…. . Stay Vigilant

Bogus POlice and Trading Standards Officers

Bogus POlice and Trading Standards Officers

Posted Friday 02 Mar 2018 11:14 AM

Kent Trading Standards and Kent Police have received reports of criminals contacting residents by phone or in person claiming to be a Police or Trading Standards Officer. They will often refer to some previous poor work that might have been carried out and falsely claim the people involved have been arrested or are already in court. They insist the resident pays money which will be reimbursed after the court hearing.

The Police, Trading Standards, or the Court, would never ask for money - under any circumstances.

This type of fraudulent activity is on the rise so please report calls or visits to Kent Police. Residents that have previously been victims of doorstep crime are particularly at risk so please warn neighbours, friends and/or relatives if you think they may be targeted.

Report to Kent Police on 101 or at your local Police station.



UK Power Networks information on weather and the electricity network

UK Power Networks information on weather and the electricity network

Posted Friday 02 Mar 2018 11:11 AM

You may be aware that the current cold spell of icy winds and snow may bring ‘freezing rain’. Freezing rain is a very rare weather phenomenon and occurs when very cold rain freezes immediately on landing.

Our electricity network is built to be resilient but extreme weather can damage overhead power lines, resulting in some customers losing their electricity supply. Where this happens we work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible, and we have organised for additional staff in our contact centre and more engineers on the ground to be available to help customers whose electricity supply might be affected by the cold weather.

Both you and your constituents will be able to find regular updates on our website www. Ukpowernetworks. Co. Uk and social media @UKPowerNetworks throughout this period.
Anyone experiencing a power cut should:

• Call 105 to report power cuts and damage to the electricity network, or 0800 3163 105 (from a corded phone or mobile phone if you have no power)
• Visit www. Ukpowernetworks. Co. Uk for the latest updates
• Visit www. Ukpowernetworks. Co. Uk/powercut and type in their postcode to view our live power cut map
• Tweet @ukpowernetworks to report a power cuts or to receive updates

We advise people to stay clear of power lines and report damaged power lines immediately by calling 105 free from either a landline or a mobile phone. If they see electricity lines that are down or causing significant risk to the public they should call 999.

We provide extra help to customers on our Priority Service Register during a power cut. Households with older or disabled people, those with children under five, or where someone uses medical or mobility equipment that requires electricity as well as other reasons can join the register. You can find out more information about our Priority Service on our website: ukpowernetworks. Co. Uk/priority.

If you would like to share information about reporting power cuts or the priority service register on social media you might like to use the following:

@UKPowerNetworks has extra staff on hand 24/7 to deal with the impact of the cold weather. Call 105 to report a powercut or visit www. Ukpowernetworks. Co. Uk/powercut

Do you need extra support during a power cut? @UKPowerNetworks provides free services to vulnerable customers. To register visit ukpowernetworks. Co. Uk/priority

Latest news from Kent Trading Standards

We are warning Kent residents of doorstep criminals taking advantage of the current bad weather. Anyone calling at your home offering to do work on your roof, guttering, driveway, or inside your property, should be treated with caution.

Accepting work from a doorstep criminal can result in paying much more than you intended for very poor, unnecessary and sometimes dangerous work.

If you require work done to your home get at least three quotes and never give a doorstep caller cash. For a list of Kent County Council approved traders visit Checkatrade or phone 0333 0146 190.

Please look out for neighbours and report any suspicious doorstep criminals to us.
