This festive season Dyfed Powys Police is promoting The 12 online frauds of Christmas campaign to protect thousands of people in our communities from falling victim to cyber-fraudsters.

It kicked-off on Black Friday, which marks the start of the busiest four days of internet shopping of the year and is an important part of our force-wide Christmas crime prevention campaign Operation Safe and Nice to All (SANTA). We will be doing everything we can to raise awareness of a dozen online frauds that have the potential to ruin your festive fun.

To see our campaign leaflet that has been created to help you stay safe throughout December visit our Operation SANTA on our website www.dyfed-powys.police.uk.

Working in partnership with the City of London Police, which is the National Policing Lead for Fraud, we begin by shining a light on the dos and donts of online shopping.

Sergeant Jonathan Rees of Dyfed Powys Police said: Every year theres a mad rush as shoppers get online to order presents in time for Christmas. Shopping online can be a great convenience for Christmas shoppers but we also need to stay vigilant and take care with what were buying, who were buying from as well as how to pay for purchases.

The good news is the majority of us will still have our presents delivered to our doorstep or into our email account without a hitch.

However, the sad reality is there will also be tens of thousands of people across the UK whose Christmas will be damaged, and in some cases destroyed, after finding out they have fallen foul of heartless criminals who specialise in tricking internet users with the promise of great online deals and big cash savings.Themes covered through this online fraud campaign are:

  • Online shopping fraud
  • Christmas e-cards
  • Auction fraud
  • Holiday fraud
  • Loan and investment scams
  • Ticketing fraud
  • Donating to charity
  • Mobile malware/malicious apps
  • Money transfers
  • Social media scams
  • Dating/romance scam
  • Mobile payments

To spread the word far and wide about The 12 online frauds of Christmas campaign we will be talking to local people and sharing top safety tips via traditional and social media and through our own community engagement teams. More internet safety advice can also be found at www.getsafeonline.org and www.cyberstreetwise.com.

We will also be urging anyone who has had the misfortune to fall victim to one of the dozen festive frauds, or any other type of cyber-fraud, to report to Action Fraud the City of London Police-based national reporting centre - on 0300 123 2040 or at www.actionfraud.police.uk.

We have received reports of metal thefts in the area.

Metal theft is an issue blighting the whole of the UK due to the money that can be made from selling metal items on.

There are things you can do to protect metal in your homes, vehicles and businesses from theft.

You can protect your home by:

  • Keeping gates locked and installing strong fences

  • Being aware of any objects that could be used to access your roof like water butts, wheelie bins and garden furniture - if possible these should be stored away from the building.

  • Putting outside lighting on a dusk till dawn circuit.

  • Being a good neighbour and encouraging others in your neighbourhood to be vigilant.

You can protect businesses and public buildings by:

  • Regularly reviewing the perimeter fencing and gates security - checking for holes and weak spots which could allow people access

  • Not leaving any scrap materials lying around which could tempt thieves.

  • Using a forensic solution to mark any metal - warning signs saying forensic marking has been used should be displayed.

  • Installing CCTV with adequate monitoring and recording. Visible warning signs should be displayed as a deterrent to potential offenders.

For more advice call 101 to speak to your Neighbourhood Policing Team or visit www.metaltheftwales.org.uk.
