Simply Gray Wow The Audience!

Simply Gray made their debut at our annual band concerts, it was a treat not to be missed.

From the moment the music started this afternoon, people were foot tapping and singing along to the music.

Online Romance Fraud

A message from our safer neighbourhood team.

 

Dear Resident,

Most people you meet online are genuine, but sadly, some people aren’t who they seem. Dating sites and social networks are targeted by scammers who use fake profiles and take their time to build what feels like a genuine relationship.  They are very skilled at this; after all, it is how they make their money.  Men and women of all ages have been targeted.

As well as individual fraudsters, it is known that organised criminal networks based overseas are involved in Romance Fraud. These networks target UK victims and often develop profiles and stories to appeal to potential victims, such as saying they are divorced or bereaved. Fraudsters will take time to develop a relationship; they may develop several potential victims at once.  Indicators may include:

  • They cannot physically meet you, especially if they’re overseas.
    •       A relationship moving quickly, possibly expressions of love or talk of marriage soon after first contact.
    •       They claim to be current or ex-servicemen or women, or they claim to be recently widowed to gain your sympathy.

Once they have won your trust, they will tell you of a problem they’re experiencing and why they need some money.  Any request for money should set alarm bells ringing.  Common tactics are:  a loved one needs money for medical treatment; or they want to visit you and need money to pay for flights; or there is a business opportunity.

Many victims have been asked to send money to African countries via money transfer services.  Recently, victims have reported being asked to send money to Turkey, and were given a Turkish IBAN (International Bank Account Number) to send funds to.  These scammers were claiming to be Americans or US Marines.

Never send money as part of an online relationship.  Once you do, the fraudster will keep inventing reasons why you need to send more.

For further advice about online relationships, please see our attached fact sheet.

The Big Stardust Band Entertain Concert Audience.

Today was the turn of the Big Stardust Band to perform at the third concert in the park. How luck we were that it wasn’t yesterday with the high winds otherwise we would have to of cancelled the concert.

As the concert got underway more and more people turned up to listen to them.  As I wandered around the park I spotted quite a few people foot tapping to the music.

Thank you to every one who parked in Chapel Lane Car park – we managed to get 14 blue badge holders in West House Car Park.

Next week Simply Gray (50’s music ) will be playing at our final concert of the season.  See you there.

Thank you Pinner & Northwood Business Club

The eagled eyed of you will have noticed that the flowers boxes have been replanted.

Thank you to the Pinner & Northwood Business Club for having the flower boxes around Pinner replanted – they look great in the summer sunshine.

And a reminder to come along to the free open air Band Concert in Pinner Memorial Park, featuring the ever popular Stardust Big Band, at 2.30pm tomorrow.

Message from our Safer Neighbourhood Team.

Dear Resident,

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has alerted us that fraudsters are contacting social media influencers based in the UK and abroad, offering them the opportunity to market a bogus product, service or investment opportunity.

Fraudsters will present professional and credible pitches to the social media influencers to convince them to feature the opportunity for a fee on their social media profiles in order to entice unsuspecting followers of the influencer to sign up or make a purchase.

Additionally, fraudsters are using the names of well-known public figures, implying that their opportunity or product is endorsed by them when it is not.

Protect Your Money

Apparent endorsements by celebrities, influencers or personalities does not necessarily mean that an investment, product or service is genuine.  Exercise a cautious approach to any such offer, using the same caution that you would at any other time.

If you are purchasing goods from a company you don’t know and trust, do some research first, or ask friends or family for advice before completing a purchase.

Professional-looking websites, adverts or social media posts do not guarantee that an investment opportunity or product is genuine. Criminals exploit the names of well-known brands or individuals to make them appear legitimate.

Avoid paying for goods or services by bank transfer unless you know and trust the person or company. Payments via bank transfer offer no protection if you become a victim of fraud. Instead, use your credit card or payment services such as PayPal as they offer you greater protection if you become a victim of fraud.

Kind regards,

Lee O’Brien PCSO 7562NW
