Crime: 17 November 2014


Something from Windsor, that everyone should know about.  That was a supermarket in Dedworth, but it could happen anywhere.
16/11  Sunday 11.10 a.m.  Supermarket Car Park, Dedworth Road.  The aggrieved came out of the supermarket to go to her car and was approached by three young people – one lad and two girls, who sounded middle European.  They were apparently confused and asked which town they were in and how could they get to the shops etc. etc..  She answered their questions and went to her car.  She opened the car, got in and placed her handbag, in the passenger foot well.  As she reversed out of her parking space, the boy and one of the girls approached again, opened her passenger door and leaned in to ask more questions.  They asked the aggrieved to point out Windsor.  The lad had a large map, which he spread over the dashboard and continued to ask for directions.  He then folded the map and left.  After they had gone, she found her purse missing from the handbag.  £1,000 was removed on the card within hours via cash back and ATMs.  PIN NUMBERS – SHOULD NEVER BE WRITTEN DOWN AND NEVER KEPT IN A PURSE, WITH THE CARDS !

Hi Jeff
Hope you are well.
Did you watch Crimewatch the other night ?  They had a piece about Solar Energy and the persistence especially with old people to sign up.
I mention it, as we have been targeted and have received at least 2 – 4 calls a day, over the last fortnight.  They always quote the same statistics - saying that it is Government sponsored.
You may well like to say a piece in your Alert Message and advise anyone with elderly parents to tell them, not to sign up. Some of these sales people are getting from £8k -£15k per house !
