Halloween Party - Wednesday 31ST October 2018

Police warn Harrow shoppers to be on the look-out for pickpockets in the Town Centre

Greenhill Safer Neighbourhood Team are urging people to keep valuables such as purses, wallets and mobile phones safe and out of sight, ideally in zipped-up bags.

The main issue is offenders who are working in teams of three or four, following elderly people and females with pushchairs from banks, building societies and then stealing their purses when the opportunity arises.

As part of our ongoing work into this, we will be talking to staff at stores and banks, particularly charity shops, to be vigilant and be aware of groups of women who may be actively targeting the elderly.

Few key messages to people, particularly the elderly and mums with prams:

  • Keep your purse out of sight, have your handbags zipped up and close to you.
  • Unattended bags are an easy and regular target, especially in cafés and busy shops.
  • Do not leave bags hanging on your trolley or pushchair or out of your sight.
  • Ensure all bags are kept on you and secured by buckle or zip.
  • Be aware of people around you if you are withdrawing cash from the bank. Do not allow anyone to distract you at the cash machine. If in doubt cancel transaction and report to bank staff.
  • Register all your personal property at www.immobilise.com. This is free to register and use and searchable by Police.

  Virgin Media Scam  

There is a new Scam going around in which someone claiming to be from Virgin Media calls and offers a discount on a Virgin Media package deal. They target existing Virgin Media customers, they ask for banking details in order to make alterations to the customer’s current package. They give the impression that the customer will be getting a better deal (which is not the case at all). After the first phone call, the customer will receive another call and this time it will be someone stating they work with the bank. The caller will say that they have spotted a payment to Nigeria, this will make the customer believe that this was something to do with the first phone call, the customer may feel reassured by this but there is more to it. The caller from the ‘bank’ will then say that they will cancel the payment to Nigeria but they will then tell the customer that they need to move all their money from their bank account into a new and ‘safe’ account as their old account has become compromised. The caller will set up a new account and insist that the customer puts all their money into this new account…THIS IS A SCAM

Please be aware, this type of scam is not limited to Virgin Media customers, customers of other big companies will also be targeted.

Sadly some people have fallen victim to this new scam, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you: NEVER give out your bank details to anyone over the telephone.
