The Crime Prevention Website


This is a new section and I will add subject matter just as soon as it becomes available.

Please click in the left-hand column to read about a wide variety of scams, some of which have been notfied to us by Action Fraud

Further guidance: 

For you further guidance you can read The Metropolitan Police's third edition of The Little Book of Big Scams This new edition contains information about several new scams, such as 'holiday accommodation' and 'event tickets' and updated information and advice about all the other scams from the previous edition. This 52 page guide gives advice on how to avoid on-line, mail, door-to-door and telephone scams and is well worth a read.

I also highly recommend that you visit the excellent Who Can You Trust website, which carries information about a wide number of scams and frauds and with whom this website is affiliated.

If you have been a Victim 

If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online to Action Fraud or by telephone to them on 0300 123 2040. The site currently lists 148 types of fraud!
