Good afternoon Bob Ayer,
We would like to make you aware of the latest telephone scam. Offenders are making contact over the telephone, claiming to be Police Officers investigating fraud allegations. They ask the victims to withdraw money from their bank account for them to collect.

It has been brought to our attention that vehicle obstruction in residential areas across the Butser Sector is a real concern to the local community.
Parking blocking a private driveway or on the pavement is the offence of 'unnecessary obstruction' and worst case scenario is that a vehicle could be towed away at the expense of the owner.
Please remember when parking you must leave room for vehicles to pass, local residents are concerned that emergency vehicles such as fire and ambulance would struggle to get past on a number of these roads across the sector during the busy periods and that pedestrians have to walk on the road due to blocked pavements.
I understand it can be difficult to find spaces because of the number of vehicles that are on the roads. Please just take a few seconds to look where you have parked, making sure you are not committing any offences. This is also for the safety of your children.
We face the challenging task of communicating with our NW Coordinators and continuing to recruit new ones.
I have sent an email to the address list that was on the site and whereas I would have liked more replies I am encouraged by those received.
Our 'website ' is based on a Content Management System (CMS) which I am not familiar with and which is quite different to the other websites that I maintain. I've bought the User Manual and I am learning as fast as possible. This particular page replaces one that was quite complicated - Now that I have changed it to this one, which is very easy to use, I hope to encourage more regular contact with you.

Payment diversion alert
Fraudsters are emailing members of the public who are expecting to make a payment for property repairs. The fraudsters will purport to be a tradesman who has recently completed work at the property and use a similar email address to that of the genuine tradesman. They will ask for funds to be transferred via bank transfer. Once payment is made the victims of the scam soon realise they have been deceived when the genuine tradesman requests payment for their services.
Always check the email address is exactly the same as previous correspondence with the genuine contact.
For any request of payment via email verify the validity of the request with a phone call to the person who carried out the work.
Check the email for spelling and grammar as these signs can indicate that the email is not genuine.
Payments via bank transfer offer no financial protection; consider using alternative methods such as a credit card or PayPal which offer protection and an avenue for recompense.
If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone 0300 123 2040.
We work with your community to find out what matters most where you live. We will work with you and partner agencies to agree the main priorities for the area and how we will work together to tackle them.
You said: Theft - Theft – There is an unacceptable level of retail theft in Petersfield Town so NPT will target, working with our partners & stakeholders to target harden retail premises. There has also been an increase in the number of reported theft of Pedal Cycles.
We did: 26/11/2016
To help tackle the issue of theft particularly in relation to theft of pedal bikes PCSO MORNING has gone to local bike shops in PETERSFIELD and given out immobilise leaflets. By logging on to www.immobilise.com you can register valuables such as bikes then if they are ever reported lost/stolen to the police we are more likely to recover this for the owner.
