Neighbourhood Watch alert

Latest entry 29 Mar 2020 –  Please stay alert during these interesting times.

In Aberdeen people have been cold called upon and told to self-isolate. They have then be asked if they need anything? Taking their bank cards and using this to withdraw money from bank accounts.

As a result I am keen to awareness raise around letting strangers in. Contacting legitimate organisations who can help. Age Cymru, Care & Repair, WRVS, etc.

A number of #COVID19 related phishing emails have been reported to Action Fraud. These emails attempt to trick you into opening malicious attachments which could lead to fraudsters stealing your personal information, logins, passwords, or banking details.

Full details of the Radyr & Morganstown Neighbourhood watch can be found on thier pages on this website.

We have had a report of an elderly female resident in Radyr being the victim of a rogue trader incident today (Sat 28th).

Two males in a white Transit van with livery on the side of ‘Tree Cutting’ or similar wording with green colouring surrounding the wording, has been to the address and removed a small amount of tiles from the roof. They have then attempted to charge a large amount of money to ‘repair’ the tiles. Luckily the female refused to part with any money and contacted her son, who quickly contacted the Police. These males are known to frequent the area and have carried out work for other residents. We ask that at this time, whereby we have a large amount of elderly people in self-isolation, neighbours are vigilant to ‘workman’ back and fore to these addresses. If you are concerned or suspicious of ‘workmen’ who are at addresses of people you believe to be vulnerable, please either check on them or if you are not happy to do so, please ring 101.

Any vehicle registrations/descriptions etc  obtained, please give to the Police.
