MESSAGE FROM THE ENVIRONMENT AGENCY 

                                                                

CHARITY COLLECTIONS - WARNING
We have received various reports regarding door-to-door callers asking for email addresses and bank details in order to set up direct debit payments for various charities. While some of these may be legitimate, there have been complaints that heavy handed and aggressive techniques have been used. On one occasion an attempt was made to gain entry under the excuse of needing something to rest on whilst taking details. Most legitimate callers will have their own equipment and identification, however please remember not to divulge any personal details to strangers, however convincing they may be. Please pass this information onto friends and neighbours.Thank you.

POSTAL SCAM WARNING
Please find warning from Royal Mail and The Trading Standards Office making people aware of the following scam:

A card is posted through your door from a company called PDS (Parcel Delivery Service) suggesting that they were unable to deliver a parcel and that you need to contact them on 0906 6611911 (a Premium rate number). DO NOT call this number, as this is a mail scam originating from Belize .
If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message you will already have been billed £315 for the phone call. If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail Fraud on 020 7239 6655.
If you have any information about suspicious incidents or activity please telephone the police on 101. Please remember to ask the call handler to mark, or tag, your call `NHW' (Neighbourhood Watch). Reference message FN004 251111 NHW office 01823-363348
