False claims of Telephone Preference Service:

Fraudsters are cold-calling victims, falsely stating that they are calling from one of the well-known UK telecommunication service providers. They call victims claiming to provide a ‘Telephone Preference Service’ - an enhanced call-barring service, which includes barring international call centres.

PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM CAR THIEVES:

Don’t leave valuables such as CDs, pen drives, sat nav systems, laptops, handbags and mobile phones on show - even if you think an item isn’t of any particular value, someone else might think differently.
Don’t leave coats or clothing visible. Their pockets may be empty but someone looking through the window won’t know that.
Make sure your car is locked and all windows, doors, boot and sunroof are closed properly.
Activate all security devices, alarms, immobilisers, etc. when left unattended.
Always park your car in a safe, well lit place. 
If you can leave your valuables at home.
If not take them with you whilst walking in the Forest.
