Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police


What should you do if you fall into the water?

First, keep your mouth away from the water until you have your breathing back under control, you can do this by rolling onto your back and floating or paddling to stay at the surface.

Then, don’t waste any time and swim towards an exit before your muscles start to cool, or swim towards something that will help you to stay afloat whilst you are calling for help.

Finally, once you are out of the water re-warm yourself as soon as you can to avoid hypothermia.

Elderly victims of a ‘boiler room’ investment fraud who were groomed and scammed of a total of over £800,000 have received compensation after confiscation orders were obtained against seven of the conmen involved.
 
More than £300,000 in compensation has been obtained as a result of the confiscation orders, and this will be shared on a pro rata basis amongst the 24 victims from across the country who were duped by the scam.
 
The final confiscation order was obtained at Kingston Crown Court on 2 June, concluding an eight-year investigation.
 
 
The fraud first came to light in 2013 after one of the victims, a woman in her 80s from #Woking, asked her bank manager to help her transfer £100,000 to the fraudsters. The bank manager became suspicious and contacted police, which triggered an investigation into an organised crime group running an elaborate and sophisticated scam.
