I know you like to be made aware when we undertake joint operations, relating to underage sales, hence this email to you, and your onward inclusion in the Alert, if you see fit.
Last night, (Thursday 24th January) jointly with TVP Officers, Trading Standards officers, conducted an underage sales operation, to tie in with the week of action, related to ‘knife crime’.  We were assisted by volunteer Police Cadets, aged 14 to 17, who, following a detailed briefing, acted as agents for us.
We tested 10 shops in Maidenhead and surrounding areas. Two shops sold to the volunteer underage agents, one, an independently owned discount store in the town centre, and the other, is a household retailer, part of a national chain.
We are taking follow-up action now against the individuals, who sold the knives and the companies they work for.
Kind regards
Rob Abell
Fair Trading Officer
Excellent work Rob !

It apparently comes from the TV Licensing people to say your licence is about to expire and your Direct Debit payment was declined !
Please click on the link below for more information !
Just to let you know for the next bulletin, a member of my staff was caught out by a DVLA scam email, offering her a refund of her DD payments. She knew something was not right, but filled out the form with all her bank details and emailed it back.
Then had a second thought and checked the DVLA website and realised what she had done. She quickly transferred all her money from that account to another one, so lost nothing financially, except the inconvenience of having to wait for a new card.
However, she then made it potentially worse by sending them an angry text message !
I explained that often the emails are randomly selected by a computer, not a personal target, but now she has sent them her mobile number, which proves that they have now contacted a real person.
So a warning to all – do the necessary to make yourself and your accounts safe, but don’t do anything else, however tempting it is!!
As I keep saying, we have instincts for a reason !  If something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t.  Listen, to that nagging doubt.
Many thanks Miriam - I could not have put it better - myself !

A Sextortion Scam, received by my wife !
It is the usual, you don’t know me.
I hacked your computer some months ago and installed malware on certain porn sites.
When you went to one of these sites, it automatically started to record both you and the site you were watching - etc. etc. 
Apparently $450 in Bitcoins, is a reasonable price for preventing them sending the footage they have to everyone in your personal address book !
They then include a long code of letters and numbers, for their Bitcoin Wallet, for the payment.  The time limit has shortened, it used to be 12 days, but is now 48 hours.
