The Festive Season can be ruined by loss, insecurity and carelessness, so it is worth taking a few simple protective security measures, in particular to protect e-mail accounts and web addresses.

  • Be aware of fake on-line shops. Check for on-line reviews and perhaps the contact details to verify trustworthiness of the supplier.
  • Protect your charitable goodwill by dealing only with bona fide charities. 
  • E-scammers often trap offering free vouchers for well-known brands and then take victims to a web link where they are asked for their details. Look for poor grammar and spellings. If in doubt, check the authenticity of the voucher by emailing the shop offering it.  
  • Advise card companies as soon as you can of a loss, otherwise you are liable for transactions.
  • Do not leave gifts and shopping in full view in vehicles and in residencies.  
  • Consider having a credit/debit card with a small amount of money only for electronic purchases. Prevents fraud. Fill it up when needed to avoid debt.


Finally, as always and with pleasure, Mark Neighbourhood Watch wishes everyone in Mark and the readers of the Parish Magazine a Merry Christmas and Seasonal Greetings. Thank you for ensuring that Mark takes its Crime Prevention seriously.
