Theft

Purse has been stolen while shopping in Dorking.

Don't leave your bag unattended (for instance in a shopping trolley, or on a cafe table while getting food) even for a moment - thieves can be very quick.

Consider attaching bells to your purse or phone (so it makes a noise when it is removed) or attaching them to your bag with a strap (so they are harder to remove). We have some at Dorking Front Counter.

Theft of half round coping bricks from the wall of the bridge on the Forest Green Rd Ockley on Tuesday 23rd Jan. Any information or witnesses please call 101 and quote ref 45180008776.

Fraud

Another Courier type fraud has taken place in Dorking in the last few days!

This is a repeat problem across Surrey that primarily targets vulnerable people within the community. It consists of a telephone call being made by someone pretending to be from the police or bank, asking the victim for personal details such as card details or for them to withdraw cash, then a courier being sent to collect either cash or card from the victim.

How to protect yourself, or someone you love from courier fraud

  • Don’t give personal details, bank cards, or money to someone you don’t know.
  • If you’re asked to call someone back, hang up and wait 5 minutes before calling back or use a mobile phone
  • Stickers from the Trading Standards fraud sticker pack can be put on telephones, cheque books and computers as a reminder not to give out details. You can pop in to your local police front counter to collect one or request one from Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06
  • trueCall provide hardware that can block unwanted telephone calls including nuisance and scam calls.
  • Registering with the Telephone Preference Service can reduce the number of unwanted calls you receive. Registration is completely free. Call them on 0345 070 0707.
  • Registering with the Mail Preference Service can reduce the quantity of unsolicited mail you receive. Registration is free of charge.
