Crime: 1 August 2014


A good end to the week – crime is still down.
It is the largest event of it’s kind in the southeast, possibly in England.  I was speaking to Cllr David Hilton at the opening of Ascot police station and he says he has over 170 exhibitors and new areas are being opened up to cater for that.  I will be there together with the neighbourhood team and members of NHW, if you have any questions or thoughts you want to share.

I am also chairing an hours ‘Any Questions’ session, re Pensions, Finance and Investment with a panel of experts !
First I have received this scam email alert from Sue.  She kept her head and dealt with it absolutely correctly.  I think she is a star and I am very grateful she sent it to me.  How many of us would have just clicked confirm ???

Hi Jeff,
Last Monday the 28th, my online banking security was compromised by "GOZI" Malware.
I was informed that someone had made a payment of £3,500, into my account by mistake and that my account was frozen, until I called or emailed my confirmation that it would be okay to release the funds back to their rightful owner!!!!
I did neither and checked with my bank on Tuesday morning. There was no payment of £3,500 into my account and it wasn't frozen. Lucky that I hadn't pressed the "confirm" button.

From the Borough:
Bright ideas
The old adage says two heads are better than one – so how much better are 147,000?  The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead has a Bright Ideas Challenge which runs until Monday 1 September. This is a fantastic way for anyone living, working or doing business in the borough to share their thoughts on how we can make life here better. There are cash prizes for the best ideas.
Last year there were notable successes – such as Midnight Markets – this year the Borough is also targeting young people to encourage them to come forward with ideas that appeal to them. Again there are cash prizes. Why not ask your under-18-year-old: Would you like a fresh approach to an issue you’d like solved? Have you been waiting for someone to share their bright ideas on how it might be done?
