FIRST A THANKYOU:

 

I have had a request from Inspector Louise Warbrick, who is responsible for the Ascot, Windsor and Maidenhead Engagement / Geographic team.

 

Hi jeff,

 

Can you circulate this information update for me please to your membership ?

 

On 15 Aug 2017 at 4.30 p.m. members of the public reported a suspicious car in the ‘Allens Field’ area, to Police.

 

Police attended immediately, acting on the information supplied and located the car and two young men, which matched the descriptions given.

 

A 16yr old and 23 yr old, were arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance, with intent to supply.

 

Both men have been ‘Released Under Investigation’.

 

Further enquiries are ongoing.

 

I would just like to thank those members of the public, who took the time and trouble to report this matter to us and for their continued support, in reporting suspicious behaviour.

Can we thank and encourage everyone to continue to report such incidents and assure them of our support.

 

Insp. Louise Warbrick.
 

 

THIS MESSAGE, HAS GONE OUT TO WINDSOR, BUT APPLIES FOR EVERYONE:

 

DATCHET, HORTON & WRAYSBURY:

15/8  Tuesday 11 a.m.  Staines Road, Wraysbury.  Burglary.  The owner’s family member was at home in the garden, when someone rang the doorbell.  They walked in through the house and saw a man looking in through a front window.  They went back out into the garden, but shortly heard a loud crash and went to investigate.  As they went into the hallway, they saw two men walking inside, they had forced the front door.  The family member shouted at them, they shouted back and immediately turned around and made off.  Nothing was stolen.  A word of advice.  Opportunist thieves will always case a house, check cars on a driveway and if they feel the family is out and the house is empty, will check, by ringing the doorbell.  If the doorbell does go at a strange time, don’t simply ignore it.  You may choose not to answer, but you must do something, to let whoever it is know, that someone is home.  The best thing to do, is turn a light on as if you are walking about inside, but make it look different.  Make sure whoever rang the bell knows - someone is inside at home.  If you are out - think about getting a fake TV !  Place it in an upstairs front facing room.  It will flicker and show around the edges of curtains that have been drawn.  It is simply an on off setting - summer / winter.  It has a dusk to dawn sensor, so comes on and goes off automatically.  4 hours on the summer and 7 hours on the Winter setting.  Just plug it in, turn it on and leave it ! At the moment, they are on sale down from £29.99 to £14.99

P.S.

 

Jeff

I am sending details to you - of this attempt - via the Action Fraud site, but it doesn't allow me to do more than copy and paste the text.

 

I wanted you to see how convincing the actual email is, appearing to be from NatWest Bank and using my active email address.

 

Of course the scammers are presumably just guessing that these details will apply to me and catch my attention, and this time they were right and other than for your frequent warnings, I might well have ‘clicked’.

 

Many will fall for it.

 

I forwarded it also to phishing@NatWest.com for information.

 

Many regards

 

Stephen
