Scam letters received via Royal Mail

Please be aware there are suspicious letters circulating in the village. The letters claim to have knowledge of a bank account with the Standard Chartered Bank of Hong Kong in the name of the recipient. These letters invite readers to respond via email and they advise that any action taken should be confidential. The letters arrive in plain white envelopes via Royal Mail.

This latest scam has been reported to the Community Police Officer and we would recommend anyone receiving letters of this kind should either report them or ignore them and please do not ever share private or sensitive information.  Action Fraud page: https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/individual-protection
