Crime and Arrests for the Chester District
Week ending 7am. Monday 26th. November 2007.

I've had details of several scams sent to me from various Homewatchers this week. Beating the scammers is fairly easy. Your bank will not ring you or Email you asking for details of your account, they already know them. If you haven't bought a lottery ticket, you haven't won a prize. Someone may well have died in Nigeria, but their relatives don't really want to give you millions of dollars. If the offer sounds to good to be true, it probably is !

It's that time of year again. If anyone wants some Christmas themed postcards with a crime reduction message to give out to your Home Watch group or in your community, let me know. They are free of charge for whatever quantity you want. Quantities up to thirty I'll put in the post, larger quantities I will arrange to deliver them to you.
