With the price of fuel so high, this type of crime appears to be on the increase; not only
from commercial premises but also from homes and private vehicles. By implementing some
simple measures you can help to minimise the theft risk.

Advertising scams: If you run a local business, be alert for cold-calls asking you to advertise in crime prevention, community safety or emergency services magazines. These calls generally pop-up towards the end of the financial year. The caller will claim to be from the police or "working with the police" to produce their magazine, which is untrue.
In some cases there will be an end product, but the circulation will be small and limited to the north of England, from where these firms usually originate. Under no circumstances should you agree to see a proof of your ad, because they will take that as a confirmation of order and chase you unmercifully for payment, even if you didn't actually agree to an order.
