Stanford-Le-Hope & District


This is advice received from the ESSEX POLICE
Although the date is 2016 the information contained is still very relevant. Please take care

It seems that there is always someone trying to relieve you of your hard earned money & possessions.

In addition to the two email scams recently publicized on Essex Community Messaging I’ve listed in the linked document Scams roundup jan 2016 some of the others (Email, Phone, Cold Calling and Postal) that are also being used and some useful contacts.

To help avoid becoming a victim make sure that anti-virus packages on your PC or smartphone are up to date, if you receive unsolicited phone calls hang up without giving any information and if you have cold callers at your door say ‘No thanks’ & close the door.
