Steven Davenport 20657 (Police, PCSO, Macclesfield LPU North & Poynton PCSO) wrote:Overnight a number of bikes have been stolen from sheds/garages and vehicles entered in the area of Coppice Road/Trafalgar Avenue. Please ensure all sheds and vehicles are secure and valuable items are placed out of sight. We would like to offer the following crime prevention advice.

* Ensure all windows and doors to garages, sheds and outbuildings are secured.
* If a factory fitted appropriate lock is not available, fit a good quality hasp and staple with a padlock to all sheds and side doors to garages.
* Remember to use a hasp and staple that can be bolted to the door and frame.
* Fit using coach bolts or tamper proof screws to secure them.
* Use disc lock padlocks which have a less exposed shackle and are less prone to attack.
* Mark your property; if it is impractical to use an ultra violet pen consider other methods such as engraving or a permanent marker pen on the property instead.
* Lawn mowers and bicycles are a less attractive target if your postcode and house number are indelibly marked on them.
* Always lock or chain cycles together or to something fixed or bulky while in the shed or garage because this reduces the ability for the thief to steal them.
* After gardening, don’t leave spades, ladders and other equipment lying around the garden. They only provide a prospective burglar with handy tools to use when breaking into your home!
* If you are enjoying a barbecue/garden party at your home, ensure that you have full sight of all open doors and make sure your front door is secured.

Dan Hind (Police, Media, Chesh Engagement Unit) wrote:The ‘Little Book of BIG Scams’ has arrived in Cheshire, providing all the information you need to help minimise the chances of becoming a victim of fraud.

The booklet provides a comprehensive guide on fraud prevention, explaining some of the most common scams in existence and providing essential advice on how to reduce the chances of being scammed.

Detective Sergeant Ian Robinson, from the Economic Crime Unit, said: “Fraudsters have many ways of seeking to gain our confidence; they are manipulative, imaginative and creative when convincing us to part from our savings.

“Anyone could become a victim of fraud and the effects on victims can be devastating, but by spending time reading this booklet now you could save yourself or somebody close to you, a lot of money and heartache in the future.”

The ‘Little Book of Big Scams’ was originally launched by the Metropolitan Police in 2012, and following its success it has now been adopted by Cheshire Police.

The52-page booklet is designed to raise awareness of the varied techniques which are being used by fraudsters across the country to part innocent members of the public with their cash. The guide includes advice on a wide range of scams, including identity theft, door-to-door scams, online fraud and banking scams.

Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner David Keane said: “This booklet is packed with all the latest information on fraud prevention and provides essential tips on how to minimise the chances of becoming a victim of fraud.

“I’d encourage all residents to take some time to have a read through this publication and learn some of the easy steps that you can take to help protect yourself and others.”

The ‘Little Book of Big Scams’ can be downloaded from the Cheshire Police website at: https://cheshire.police.uk/advice-and-s ... big-scams/
