SCAM WARNING - CURRENTLY OPERATING IN RICCALL

Several villagers with external mail-boxes have recently discovered multiple new credit cards in their post, none of which they have applied for. It would appear that envelopes bearing their names and addresses may have been taken from their mail-boxes and these used to apply for credit cards. An individual has been seen hanging round the village appearing to deliver flyers, usually at the time when the postman makes his delivery. This suggests that he may then try to remove any letters from the post-boxes which could include newly-issued credit cards.

The matter has been reported to the Police who, unfortunately, can do little without more information.

To safeguard your identity, please be vigilant and check your mail-box frequently and as soon as possible after the postman has been. If you can still use your normal letterbox, you could ask the postman to deliver your mail through your door. Alternately you could consider removing your external mail-box altogether.

The individual seen in the village has been described as black, tall, thin, clean-shaven, wearing jeans and a white cap and carrying a large bag appears to contain flyers.

If you see anyone acting suspiciously or have any concerns at all please ring the Police on 101 to report any incident.
