Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good afternoon subscribers
Please find below the South Cambridgeshire weekly updates, providing information on local crime trends, antisocial behaviour, success stories and upcoming events.
Recently there has been an increase in Business Burglaries with more of us at home than ever before please keep an eye out for businesses in your village. If you suspect something please report it.
I would like to make you aware of a scam
It's an automated messages which states the following:
"We have been trying to get hold of you, there is an arrest warrant out for you by Her Majesty's Custom and Revenue Service press 1 to speak to your case officer." The phone number is 07799639314.
This is not how HMRC would contact the public and although obviously a scam to some, it will cause anxiety and distress to others perhaps resulting in them contacting what is clearly a mobile telephone number and potentially losing money or sensitive information. (And to most we know that HMRC would not use a mobile number, but again not always obvious)
There is another one via text regarding ebay and having a failed payment, it then directs to a link that asks for you password. If you are worried check on a seperate device and log in on the ebay desktop site to confirm.
All pre planned engagements are now cancelled due to Covid 19.
