I would like you and your families to be aware of an international Organised Crime Group using the PayPal name to facilitate fraud.
It happens as follows:
The victim advertises electrical goods for sale on a legitimate online market place.
The victim will receive contact from an interested buyer and a sale is agreed.
The victim will later receive an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) which appears on face value, to be from PayPal. The email will state that the goods need to be sent with a tracking reference prior to payment being made through PayPal.
The victim believing this is a true instruction from PayPal, then sends the goods.
No payment is ever sent or received.
Criminals can spoof an email address and telephone number, that means criminals can make their communication look like it has been sent by a known or trusted sender.
If in doubt, contact the sender via a telephone but don’t reply to the original email.
PayPal will never request that goods are sent out prior to payment being received.
NEVER SEND GOODS UNTIL PAYMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED.
ONLY USE A TRUSTED MAINSTREAM ONLINE PAYMENT SERVICE LIKE PAYPAL.
USE A CREDIT CARD FOR ONLINE PURCHASES RATHER THAN A DEBIT CARD.

What more can we ask for…. There was a record number of classic buses – A fair number and flow of public – Not as many as I thought would attend the event.
Very popular – The ‘free’ rides which seemed pretty full most of the day.
Connie and friends, some from Whittlesey today completed their ‘Walk-To Remember’
In fine weather several hundred others from the area joined in.
We are pleased to announce that she has raised £426:00 this year (Last year £301:00) so has done very well and wishes to say a BIG THANK YOU to the 25 supporters who paid Cash and the 11 sponsors who visited ‘Just Giving Page’
A wonderful organisation – who are there when families are in most need of support.
Has ‘He’ or ‘She’ already been chosen !!! – How about a guessing game !!! – A Whittlesey Councillor !!! – How about these pictures.

Some neighbours are becoming concerned about The Jehovah’s Witnesses knocking on elderly peoples doors. They are doing nothing illegal and have like other religious groups being carrying out these activities for many years.
Signs of doors and windows informing of ‘No Cold Callers’ may help.
A spy-eye glass through the door in order to see who maybe at the door.
A CCTV system or doorbell with a mini-camera may help.
Or as many people do – just not answer the door.
If you do so, politely say you’re not interested and close the door.
Of course if you are interested in what they have to offer or say – that is your decision.
A very convincing ‘scam message’ sent to SR purported to have come from ‘Argos’™ –
There are a couple of give-aways – why not come along to the ‘Free Scams Session’ – this Wednesday at 7pm – Whittlesey Town Council Offices – as advertised here previously.
Fortunately SR checked with Argos – and it was a ‘Scam’
If you are unsure – never click on a link.
Before I post ‘links’ on this site – I always check them myself first and only post ‘links’ to known trusted organisations.
