GOV.UK Scam Email
Please be aware that today I have received an email claiming to be from GOV.UK advising that a number of National Insurance Numbers have been disabled following reports of fraudulent activity. The email states that if you are the recipient of such an email then your NIN as they state has been disabled and you must reactivate on the Red (Start Now) button shown on the attached document.
If you receive one of these emails, please Do Not follow the instructions and Do Not click on the Red (Start Now) Button, simply delete it immediately.
Please take a look at the attached document to familiarise yourself with the scam.
Recently a home on Southview Road, Bridgwater, was burgled during the night. A small window had been left open and someone has gained entry and stolen a laptop.
We want to remind residents to ensure they close and lock all unattended doors and windows.
