Scam Awareness

This information is to provide awareness and advice in regards to how you can access support and safeguard yourself against scams during the coronavirus outbreak.

Unfortunately not everyone out there is trustworthy and some people will try to take advantage of this unusual situation our society is facing and try to exploit people.

Listed below are some of the scams that you could be approached with, but please note that criminals and their scams come in all shapes and sizes, and they may contact you at the door, by phone, post or online:

Be aware of people offering miracle cures or vaccines for coronavirus – there is no specific treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19)

People impersonating healthcare workers, claiming to be offering ‘home-testing’ for coronavirus – this is a scam and these kits are not currently available to buy

Emails saying that you can get a refund on taxes, utilities or similar - they are usually bogus and they are just trying to obtain your bank and personal details

Fake products available to buy online that advise they can protect you or cure coronavirus - these will not help and are just designed to take your money

Mobile phone applications that claim to give you updates on the virus but instead, they lock your phone and demand a ransom

Calls from people purporting to be from your bank, or from the police, asking for your bank details over the phone

People offering to do you’re shopping or collecting medication and asking for money upfront and then disappearing

To avoid becoming a victim of a scam, we’ve please follow our tips and advice below:

Be cautious and listen to your instincts. Don’t be afraid to hang up, bin it, delete it or shut the door

Take your time; don’t be rushed

If someone claims to represent a charity, ask them for ID. Be suspicious of requests for money up front. Check with family and friends before accepting offers of helps if you are unsure

If you are online, be aware of fake news and use trusted sources such as .gov.uk or NHS.uk websites. Make sure you type the addresses in and don’t click on links in emails

Only purchase goods from legitimate retailers and take a moment to think before parting with money or personal information

Know who you’re dealing with - if you need help, talk to someone you know or get in touch with your local Council on the numbers below

Protect your financial information, especially from people you don’t know. Never give your bank card or PIN to a stranger

 

We know it can be difficult to know who to trust, and we hope this information helps you to feel more informed and more able to protect yourself against these types of scams.

If you’re online or have a mobile phone Facebook Community groups and WhatsApp groups can be great ways of staying in touch with those around you.

Anti-social Behaviour - Motorbikes

Humberside Police are receiving regular complaints concerning the anti-social use of off road bikes and motorbikes.

Riding these bikes are, for some, a popular pastime however, it can result in complaints to the Police and Council when they are being used in a dangerous, noisy and anti-social way.

Off road motorbikes can only be used if it is on private land and you have the land owners permission. It is illegal to ride any motorbike in public open spaces such as parks, play areas and pavements.

In law, most off road motorbikes must be constructed to a specific standard in order to be ridden on a public highway. Most off road motorbikes do not meet this standard. Off road motorbikes also need the following if they are to be used on the public highway;

  • DVLA registration
  • Road Tax
  • Valid MOT
  • Fitted with lights
  • Fitted with registration plates

The rider must also;

  • Be aged 17 or over (or 16 if the vehicle meets the definition of a moped)
  • Hold a valid driving licence
  • Wear suitable safety equipment e.g. helmet

If off road bikes or motorbikes are causing a nuisance in your neighbourhood then call Police on 101. Police can stop vehicles which are being used in a careless, inconsiderate manner or is being ridden off road and it is likely to cause alarm, distress or annoyance to the public. If, following a warning the person continues to offend, Police can seize and remove the vehicle.

Information that can help Police may include:

  • The name and address of the owner
  • Where the bike is stored
  • When and where the bike is being used (e.g. times and routes)
  • Descriptions of those that use the bike and its make/model/colour.
