Police Imposters 2
Written by Rob Gordon   
Saturday, 24 January 2015
Police have issued a warning to members of the public, following an incident in Cambridge city where two men have posed as police officers. A further incident occurred at Fulbourn Old Drift, in Teversham 21/01/2015 where two males posing as police officers called on an elderly gentleman at 12:30 at night, making enquiries about a deceased spouse. It is thought the males obtained personal details by reading a recent obituary column in the paper. Fortunately no money was handed over, and the gentleman did not allow the men into the house. Always take precautions when answering the door to anyone you do not know. If you are approached by police the officer should always show their I.D., if they don't ask to see it. If they do not have proof of I.D. contact the police via 101 or 999 if you are in immediate danger. It is very rare for police officers to call without making an appointment first, always be suspicious. If you have information about this incident call police on 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 Incident ref: CC-21012015-0252 Rachel Carr

POLICE have issued a warning to members of the public following an incident where two men have posed as police officers. The incident happened on Tuesday (January 20) at about 6pm when the victim, a man in his early 20s, was cycling along Northfield Avenue in Cambridge when he was stopped near to The Ship pub by two men who claimed to be police officers. The victim was searched by the two men who found and confiscated £30 in cash. They accused him of being a drug dealer on a stolen bike before saying they needed to make a call to carry out some checks on him. The two men then got into their vehicle, a dark coloured car, and shouted back to the victim "you have just been mugged mate”. Chief Inspector Chris Balmer, Safer Neighbourhood Manager for Cambridge City, said: "Following this incident I am asking members of the public to be cautious. If they are approached by police the officer should always show their ID, if they don’t, ask for it. "If they do not have proof of ID you should call police to make a report on 101 or 999 if you are in immediate danger.” Anyone with information about this incident should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Fraud Protection

Fraudsters regularly hack into personal online accounts to obtain details which will allow them to defraud you. To prevent fraudsters, it’s very important to use strong passwords when setting up and accessing online accounts and online banking. Passwords should be memorable enough not to have to write them down and long enough to be unique and hard to guess, which will ensure they are less vulnerable to being stolen. If it is not possible to remember passwords a password manager could be used to store them securely. Protect yourself: • Make sure passwords are memorable so that you don’t have to write them down. Make sure they are unique. • Th!nk ab0ut how you could change the l3tters in your n0rmal passw0rds to make them more difficult to gue55! • Use long, non-dictionary words and use different ones for each of your personal accounts and online banking. Make sure you change them regularly. • Make sure passwords are not stored on devices that have shared access by other people, for example in internet cafes and when using other public Wi-Fi. If you believe you have become a victim of account hacking, change your passwords immediately and report to Action Fraud: www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud
