Happy Christmas shopping but please take care on-line

“Beware of fake sites and scam emails” that’s the advice of Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore prior the busiest weekend for internet shopping this weekend.
Known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this weekend is the busiest time for the year for internet shopping.
Tim Passmore said, “It’s a shocking statistic, but, according to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, more than half of Britons have been victims of an online crime.
“Last year in the UK, Christmas shoppers made an estimated 115 million visits to online retail sites on the first Monday in December. That is a mind-blowing figure and with that many on-line transaction the potential for crime is very likely.”
“Before you head to your computer with your credit card in your hand I would urge everyone to take a look at the Action Fraud website, www.actionfraud.police.uk and keep yourself safe.”
