Police advise ‘hang up on suspicious callers’

Published

on

A NATIONAL telephone scam, aiming to steal money, has reached residents living within the Dyfed-Powys area.

Paul Callard, of Dyfed-Powys Police’s Financial Crime Team, said: “Action Fraud has today  made us aware three people living in Dyfed-Powys have been contacted by fraudsters claiming to be from BT, in the past four days. While three people have reported, we suspect many more have been targeted.

“Victims receive a telephone call from someone pretending to be from BT who is calling due to a problem with the victim’s internet connection speed. During the call the victim is asked to open their online banking, eBay, Tesco and other accounts. The scammer then tries to gain remote access to the victim’s computer to empty the victim’s bank account.

“BT will never ask for remote access to your computer or access to your online bank account. We urge anyone who receives unsolicited/cold calls from any company hang up immediately. Do not enter into conversation with them, provide them with any personal details or send them any money. You should only phone the company back using a trusted phone number.”

If you have been the victim of fraud, attempted fraud, or cyber crime, or have received a potential scam message or computer virus but no money has been lost or you haven’t responded to it, report it to Action Fraud either online or by calling 0300 123 2040.

Man consumed ‘six treble vodkas’ as he looked after children

Published

on

A CARMARTHENSHIRE man found in public with his two young children after he drank six treble vodkas appeared before magistrates in Llanelli on Thursday (Jan 11)

The man, in his 40s, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to two charges of being drunk in charge of a child under the age of seven.

Lisa Jones, prosecuting, requested that the case be adjourned for a pre-sentence report.

She told the court that last September police officers spoke to the man, who had two children with him – one in a pram.

The officers could smell alcohol and he said that he had only had six drinks but was unsteady on his feet.

The defendant went on to say that he had not slept for the past five days, had consumed six treble vodka-and-cokes that day and thought he was ‘tipsy’.

There was a bottle of clear liquid under the pram which was established to be vodka. The man admitted to drinking once a week and said that the children had eaten four hours previously.

Sentencing was adjourned for three weeks to allow the probation services to carry out a full report. The defendant was released on unconditional bail until then.
