COVID 19: Scam Awareness Letter

Dear Resident

We are writing to you with 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.

You can also sign up to our My Community Alert to receive updates straight to your mobile or email on what’s going on in your community.

There has been a spate of cycle thefts at the Redwood Glades Care Home, Leads Road. The offenders have entered the grounds of Redwood Glades via the Hornsea Cycle Track, cut cycle locks and made off with cycles belonging to staff members and carers.

If you have any information regarding these thefts then please make contact with us or alternatively report online using Crime Stoppers.

It's likely that those responsible will target cycles located in other areas of the Sutton Ward.

Eight ways to help prevent anyone taking your bike:


1. Register it

Get your bike security marked and registered at BikeRegister or alternatively immobilise.com . It’s a highly effective, visible deterrent to bike thieves. They know that if they are caught with a registered bike, the owner can be traced and they can be arrested. 

2. Record it

Remember to record details of your bike such as the frame number (normally found underneath the bike between the pedals or where the back wheel slots in), the BikeRegister number plus any other distinguishing features, and take a photo.

3. Double-lock it

It can take thieves as little as few seconds to cut through some locks, so use two good quality locks, at least one of which is a D-lock.

4. Lock the lot

Lock the frame and both wheels to the cycle parking stand.

5. Secure it

Secure your bike as close to the stand as possible to give any thieves little or no room to manoeuvre.

6. Remove the removable bits

Take parts that are easy to remove with you. Or use locking skewers or nuts which can increase security by securing the bike's components to the frame permanently, making it difficult for thieves to steal detachable parts.

7. Remember safety begins at home

Take the same care to lock your bike securely at home as you would on the street.

8. Act fast

If your bike has been stolen, contact us as soon as possible. Give us your frame number, BikeRegister number, a photo and any other details and make sure you update the status on BikeRegister. The sooner we know, the sooner we can act, which might stop it being sold on.

Motorcycles

Across the force #OpYellowfin continues to be on the lookout for motorbikes which may be stolen, ridden dangerously or illegally.

Officers are constantly gathering intelligence, carrying out warrants, and speaking with people about their concerns about the ASB surrounding this type of criminality.

Our officers are dedicated to their task and continue to stop offenders, arrest suspects and recover stolen property.

If you have any information regarding the identities of offenders, for example their names and or home addresses, then please do not hesitate to contact us. The source of any information provided is strictly confidential is not disclosed to the offenders.

Sutton Ward (Priority One)

This priority has been created to tackle the issue of nuisance motorcycles on the Hornsea Cycle Track near to Kestrel Avenue and the immediate area.
