Local area: Llanidloes

Date agreed: 01 April 2020

Action

We’ve come up with these expert, easy-to-follow safety tips to help protect you from falling victim to seasonal scams such as fraudulent shopping websites, fake goods, convincing phishing emails and ads for offers that are too good to be true.

Don’t pay for anything by transferring money directly to people or companies you don’t know, however desperate you are to buy. If it’s a fraud, it’s doubtful the bank will be able to recover or refund your money. The safest way to pay for anything is by credit card.

Make sure shopping websites are authentic by carefully checking the address is spelled correctly. Fraudsters can set up convincing websites with very similar spelling to the authentic one.

Ensure that payment pages are secure, by checking that addresses begin with ‘https’ (‘s’ is for secure) and there’s a closed padlock in the address bar.

When you’ve fi nished paying, log out of your account. Simply closing the page may not do this automatically.

Rural crime continues to be a concern and the theft of farm machinery and equipment particularly Quad Bikes remains a high priority.

A number of activities are on going including high visibility patrols which are designed to prevent crime. A number of other actions have taken place over recent months as part of operations to identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of these thefts and to recover stolen property.

Llanidloes Neighbourhood Policing Team are reminding residents to be vigilant and to report any activity they suspect to be suspicious through 101 or 999.”

Details:

Dyfed-Powys Police covers one of the most rural police areas in England and Wales. Agriculture within Dyfed and Powys tends to favour livestock farming and as a result many areas, including open access land, is stocked with sheep and cattle. We regularly receive calls from farmers, landowners and members of the public reporting farm animals being chased by dogs and in the most serious of cases where sheep in particular have been savaged and killed by dogs or having to be put down by a veterinary surgeon. The impact this can have on a rural business can be devastating. Not only does the farmer incur expensive veterinary costs to treat or put the livestock to sleep but for pregnant ewes, in particular, there is the risk of aborting their unborn lambs. This can incur further veterinary expense but also the loss of income from a depleted flock cannot be replaced. During 2019 the Powys Rural Crime team dealt with with a total of 55 incidents.

Please take a look at the attached leaflet for further advice and information.
