Mobile phone theft still goes on; just over the Borough boundary in Whitton a lady had her phone snatched from her pocket a few days ago.  Never leave your mobile phone (or any other items of value) visible to others.

The latest “scam”:  a “parking penalty charge” demand.   It’s clearly bogus because it gives no details of the location, time or date of the alleged offence, nor the vehicle supposedly involved, and also has an obvious spelling error.  Delete without action.

A useful maxim, noted from the rear wall of the “Nationwide” branch in Hounslow: Always trust your instincts  –  not the caller, texter or e-mailer.  If you don’t know they’re who they say they are, think  –  they may not be.
