Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

This message is sent on behalf of Sherborne Neighbourhood Watch.

Good Afternoon,
Sherborne Neighbourhood Watch would like to invite you to an open meeting that will take place on Thursday 18th July 2019, at the Sherborne School, JCR (next to the hub), DT9 3LF.  Arrival is 6 pm for a 6.30 pm start to the presentations and will finish at approximately 8 pm.

The theme of the meeting is scams and you will learn about the different types, signs to look out for and how to support a victim.

Unfortunately it is an often unseen crime, to put it into context, Dorset Police responded to 34 calls between January and April this year where £331,682 of potential victims’ money could have been handed over to fraudsters.  The average age of those people targeted was 75 years old, with 56 per cent being men.  A huge amount of money and victims in a short period and that is just what we know about, since many people don’t report.

Featuring guest speakers form Dorset Trading Standards, Dorset Police and Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Please advise by reply to this message if you aim to attend.

Thank you
Message sent by
Elaine Ryan (Police, Prevention Development Officer, Dorset)
