A warning is issued regarding a number of scams making the rounds which are known to be circulating in Shefford. Please be on your guard and do not give away any information which might let someone have access to your cash. The Spanish Lottery Scam looks impressive and official with lots of design work that looks like seals. Parcel delivery, you receive a card or phone call stating that a delivery could not be made and you need to ring a premium number to arrange a new delivery date. First there is about a five minute lecture on using the system, someone answers and pretends to go away and look for the parcel, returning several minutes later to say they cannot find it. Your telephone bill will be £20 for nothing! Bank Account email message purporting to be from some random bank saying there has been a problem with your account and that you need to re-enter your account details. This information goes into some bogus web browser window that looks like just like your bank with their logo etc. No bank would do that, delete it immediately.
