CRIME PREVENTION ADVICE (from Essex Police)

Your identity and personal information are valuable so it’s important to protect them.
Criminals can use your personal details to open bank accounts and get credit cards, passports and driving licences in your name. This is known as identity crime.
Identity theft and identity fraud are two types of identity crime.

Identity theft is when someone gains enough information about an identity (e.g, name, date of birth, address) to commit identity fraud. It’s the misappropriation of the identify of another person without their knowledge or consent.
Identity Fraud occurs when a stolen identity is used to gain goods or services by deception e.g. open a bank account, gain benefits or apply for credit cards.
So here’s our advice

  • Criminals commit identity theft by stealing personal information, usually from documents they find in the rubbish.
  • A stolen identity can result in identity fraud which can affect your personal finances and chances of getting a loan, credit card or mortgage.
  • If any of your cards are lost or stolen, cancel them straight away and never give card details or personal information over the phone or on the internet when other people can see or hear.
  • Don’t carry cards unnecessarily. If you don’t need them, leave them in a safe place.
  • If your driving licence is lost or stolen, contact the issuing organisation straight away.
  • Get in the habit of checking your bank statements. If you spot any transactions you didn’t expect, contact the company concerned.
  • Destroy unwanted documents using a shredder. Don’t throw away bills, bank statements, receipts or unwanted post in your name without shredding it first.
  • Keep personal information somewhere safe like a lockable drawer or cupboard.

    And when it comes to Passwords and PINs:

  • Keep passwords safe and don’t store them anywhere that means they may be stolen such as your purse or on your mobile phone.
  • Try not to use the same password for more than one account.
  • Never give personal or account details to anyone who contacts you unexpectedly even if they claim to be from your bank or the police. Take a phone number and call them back to make sure they are genuine. Remember a bank will never ask for your PIN or your whole password.

Spreading the Word

This Weekly Bulletin is circulated to nearly 500 NhW and other registered recipients every week across Uttlesford. We hope you find this useful and will be asking you to complete a short satisfaction survey next week to see if this meets your needs. In the meantime, We hope that you are spreading the word by forwarding this message to your neighbours, friends and relatives.

Observer Competition

We ran a competition in the Spring edition of the Observer and we made the draw after the recent AGM. The lucky winner of the Fake TV was Colin Blakeburn from Saffron Walden.

This is a brilliant security device (it is a small box which gives the effect of there being a TV in the room in which it is located) and we are offering this for a limited time at only £22.50 (normal price is £28.50).

Please contact Graham Jackson on g.jacksonelnhw@hotmail.com to order yours.

 CRIME REPORTS

 

After the ‘spike’ in crimes featured in last week’s Bulletin, thankfully we seem to be back to the ‘normal’ level of reported crimes across the district. However, we still need to be both vigilant and encourage our neighbours to report crimes so that we can keep Uttlesford as a low crime area.

If you have any information regarding these crimes please contact Braintree Police station on 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

New benches for Rochford Sq

Dear All,

We hope the new year has started well for all of FHP residents.

Just to let you know that three new benches have been located to Rochford Sq. These were funded by S106 monies allocated to the development. We drew up a proposal last year and the Parish Council, with a local contractor project managed the work.

Hopefully the benches bring more people, especially families to the green and give the area more of a community feel. Please let’s all keep an eye out that they are used properly and looked after!

Best Regards
