Good evening 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 theft from motor vehicles particularly in the village of Haslingfield. If you have anything of value take it inside your home and out of sight of potential criminals please. If you suspect something please report it.
We have had complaints from members of the public of neighbours having fires in the day whilst this isn’t a criminal offence it may cause a nuisance to others at a time when we are restricted to our homes and gardens. Please be considerate to others and if you are affected by this then please contact Environmental Health South Cambs on email@example.com.
I would like to make you aware of a scam
I have just had this come from the Cyber protect team. I just wanted to remind you of the importance of using Two-factor (2FA) or Multi-factor (MFA) authentication where possible on all business and private online accounts.
Using 2FA and MFA means that even if criminals compromise an account password, they will be prevented or disrupted from gaining access, because they will not know the code generated by your account and sent to your mobile phone, or whatever option you have used in the MFA setup.
Someone in the county had a scamming attempt made on them. They have a Gmail account with 2FA set up on it, a couple of days ago they received a text message from Google that stated an attempt had been made to access their account from Taiwan. If the contact had not have had 2FA setup, the cyber - criminal would have been in the account quietly stealing private data, and possibly sending out phishing emails to all his contacts which would have appeared to have come from them.
