Scam warning

Police are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the sale of mobile phones to 18 people via the online sales sites Gumtree’ and ‘Shpock’.

The phones being advertised for sale have been mainly Apple iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy 7s and victims have lost hundreds of pounds.

In each case the seller has insisted the buyer uses an online bank transfer rather than Paypal with a view to sending the phone using the Post Office tracking system – but the phone has never been dispatched.

Victims have been targeted from areas including Gorleston, Hemsby, Norwich and Thetford as well as elsewhere in the country including Essex, Suffolk, London and Nottingham.

Investigations are ongoing to identify the suspect/s however officers would like to urge members of the public to be extra vigilant when paying for such items online.

Officers would also like to hear from anyone who believes they may be a victim of such crime. Anyone with information or, who wishes to make a crime report, is asked to contact PC Paul Atkinson at Norfolk Constabulary on 101.

To report a fraud or any online crime you can also call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or use the online fraud reporting tool at www.actionfraud.police.uk

Police security message

The following is a Police Connect message.

With the nights getting darker we are urging you to keep your home safe. LOCK your windows & doors, Keep a LIGHT on and HIDE any valuables.
Most burglaries are committed by opportunist thieves who will search a neighbourhood for homes that look empty or dark, with access to back gardens. They also look out for windows that have been left open and unlocked doors.
By following a few simple steps, you can reduce the chances of becoming a victim of burglary.

Parking outside schools

Broadland Police are receiving reports from schools and members of the public of inconsiderate and illegal parking outside schools. We are urging those dropping off and collecting children to allow more time before they leave to park somewhere suitable further from the school entrance. Alternatively walk children to school or use a school bus if available. Broadland Police work alongside Broadland Council and Highways to address this on-going issue. Police can be contacted on the 101 number.
