How To Shop Online Safely

Check the web address

Always check you’re on the correct website. Criminals can set up fake websites that have a similar design and web address to the genuine site.

Is it a secure connection?

Web pages you enter personal or financial details into should display a locked padlock sign and have a web address that starts with https. This means your connection to the website is secure.

Phishing

Don't click on links or attachments within unsolicited emails. The number of online shopping related phishing emails increases significantly during the holiday period.

Bank transfers
65% of Action Fraud reports during the 2016 Christmas period were linked to online auction sites. Don’t pay for goods or services by bank transfer unless you know and trust the person. Payments via bank transfer offer you no protection if you become a victim of fraud.

Safety Advice for Darker Nights

It’s now darker earlier. Check out our winter burglary crime prevention advice here ....

After the clocks go back we start thinking about the darker night’s drawing in. Traditionally there is a rise in burglaries in the winter period, especially during the run up to Christmas and it is sensible to think about your home security.

You can reduce the risk of being a victim of burglary by following four simple steps:

  1. Leave a light on inside your home when you are absent, preferably using a low energy bulb.
  2. Use a timer switch to activate lights as it gets dark, alternating the times they are illuminated to give the impression of someone being at home.
  3. Make sure your front door is well lit using dusk to dawn lighting that automatically comes on as it gets dark.
  4. Make sure you keep your doors and windows locked at all times.
