Doorstep crime advice in light of Coronavirus

The Sanderstead Safer Neighbourhood team writes,

We know that groups are setting up all over the country to offer support to people who are isolating. Whilst in the vast majority of these cases, the individuals will be well-intentioned, there may be some who see this as an opportunity for their own criminal gain.

The easiest way of remembering how best to protect yourself and your loved ones if someone comes to your door offering help.

Stop – never do anything you don’t want to or make any decisions on the spot
Check  – Check for ID but remember most of these are community volunteers so wouldn’t necessarily have ID. There is no way of knowing whether they are legitimate
Ask – Ask someone you trust for a second opinion, or ask them if they can provide the support you need.
Mine – If they ask for your card or your pin, remember this is very personal information which should not be shared
Share – If you come across a scam, share your experience with others if possible to prevent them from being scammed.

Doorstep fraud is a crime. It happens to a wide range of people with all sorts of backgrounds. Please report it if it happens to you.

Protect yourself

Watch out for scam messages:
Don’t click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails, and never respond to unsolicited messages and calls that ask for your personal or financial details.

Shopping online:
If you’re making a purchase from a company or person you don’t know and trust, carry out some research first, and ask a friend or family member for advice before completing the purchase. If you decide to go ahead with the purchase, use a credit card if you have one, as most major credit card providers insure online purchases.

Community Meeting in Croydon – Weds, 4 Mar 2020 – ALL WELCOME! – Landlord Licensing scheme consultation and more!

Please join us for our next public meeting

in the hall to the rear of:

St. Michael and All Angels with St. James
Poplar Walk
Croydon
CR0 1UA

Enter via the gate to the left of the Church.

Please book a free place to attend.

St Michael front

Come along to meet others from across Croydon, pick up local information, hear what others have to say and to join the conversation.

It is free to attend but donations to support our work or taking out paid membership is welcomed.

Topics for discussion

UPDATE at 26 February
The meeting will open with a presentation on the landlord licensing scheme consultation in Croydon.  Council officers will be on hand to explain the scheme, issues and options, to answer questions and listen to your views.

This scheme affects everyone. If you are a landlord, a tenant or prospective landlord or tenant of a privately rented property you’ll want to have a say. Council officers are also interested in hearing the views of residents and businesses located by private rental properties who may be affected by the decisions taken.

“…Croydon has a higher proportion of private rented properties than the national average. Evidence from the Council’s current scheme also shows that there are significant issues with property conditions, home hazards and deprivation.

In wards where the level of private renting is slightly lower than the national average, there is still evidence of anti-social behaviour that appears to be linked to privately rented properties.”

The rest of the meeting will be given to general discussions on topics people attending wish to raise or notices people wish to give about what is going on in the community.
