Faces of The Village

Lisa Scott, who took the photo above.

Lisa has lived in the village with her husband for 23 years. Working from home as a web designer affords her the luxury of leisurely daily strolls through the village with her two lurchers and camera.

Lisa has traced her family tree and been able to identify paternal ancestors from over 400 years ago from Newton Green. Her great great grandfather was a shepherd in Boxted in 1877.

Lisa belongs to a local photography group Creative Shots and finds it a great way to develop her photography skills with like minded enthusiasts. New members are always warmly welcomed.

Fraud Offences

• Offenders will ring their victims claiming to be from the fraud department of the victims bank and tell them that there account has been compromised. The victim is then persuaded to use internet banking to transfer their money into ‘clean’ bank account under the control of the fraudster from which it can quickly be transferred overseas through a series of accounts or withdrawn in cash in the UK.

• If you believe your account is being used as a ‘mule’, for example if you have had unsolicited credits and are now being asked to move the money to a third account, you should contact your bank immediately and ask them to arrange return of the money rather than doing it yourself

• Pension Fraud continues to be a real issue nationally whereby boiler rooms are redirecting their efforts to target victims who have accumulated large pension pots and persuade them to transfer funds to new investments which in fact don’t exist.

• Pension Fraud continues to be a real issue nationally whereby boiler rooms are redirecting their efforts to target victims who have accumulated large pension pots and persuade them to transfer funds to new investments which in fact don’t exist. What is particularly cruel about this kind of fraud is that the victim becomes liable for tax on any money withdrawn from a pension pot before they reach the age of 55, even if all the money has been lost to a fraudster.

• More than ever before, fraudsters are returning to the same victim again and again. This is true both for victims who know they have been scammed, who are often offered a fresh investment to recover the money lost during a previous fraud; and unknowing victims whose identity has been compromised and will be used to take out loans, credit cards and other financial products until their credit rating can’t take any more.

These frauds can be prevented – check out the Action Fraud website at www.actionfraud.police.uk

Anyone who suspects their details have been compromised should register with a credit reference agency in order to get updates on any financial product applications made in their name and to take control of their credit ratings.
