Fraudsters are targeting online advertising platforms where items are acquired for free. The fraudsters will list items on the website and advise any purchasers that they have recently moved from the area they were originally living in and can arrange a courier to dispatch the items for a fee. 
 
The payment requested for this service is usually via Money Transfer such as MoneyGram or Western Union, or an e-money voucher. The items they were promised are not received and any attempts to contact the individual to gain a refund are unsuccessful.
 
Protect Yourself:

  • Stay within the auction guidelines stipulated on the website.
  • Ask to view the item in person.
  • Be cautions of making advance payments to a stranger via Money Transfer or e-money products.
  • If the item advertised seems too good to be true, it probably is.

If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it onlinehttp://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone 0300 123 2040.

People are being targeted to become “Parcel Mules” as part of a reshipping scam, which results in them handling stolen goods and losing out financially. 
 
Victims are predominantly recruited through job advertisements and dating websites. They are persuaded to have items delivered to their addresses, and to pay for postage before sending the items elsewhere. Victims are contacted through Freelancer websites and invited to become a “Freight Forwarder” as an employment opportunity. The work is advertised as processing packages and forwarding them to clients.

Good Morning,
I have been made aware that another push bike has been found in the Frodsham area.
The bike is a black Elite Viking Targa. It has front white suspension.  The bike looks like a youths bike as the seat is raised very high. If you have lost your bike or been victim of a bike theft of a similar model please contact me as soon as possible. If you need to see a picture of the bike please reply to this message.
Many thanks and hope everyone has a nice Bank Holiday weekend.
Regards

Unfortunately there has been a theft of push bikes from a garden shed in Sutton Weaver between 20:00hrs on 19/08/2015 and 11:00 hrs on 20/08/2015. If you live around the Cedar Avenue area of Sutton Weaver please check all sheds and garages to make sure you have not been targeted. If you do notice anything suspicious please call 101 or email myself on

I will be carrying out bike marking on Monday 24th August at 11:00hrs at Helsby Library and at 13:00hrs at Kingsley Community Centre. I am aware this is on a weekday where a number of people work so the next event I set up will be on a weekend very soon.

Many thanks
