A Quiet Month?
All members
Dear <<First Name>>
A Quiet Month? 
You can be forgiven for thinking that in terms of ewatch messages, May has been a very quiet month – that is unless you have opted to receive Farm Watch messages. The nine Farm Watch messages issued last month detailed a total of 19 incidences ranging from an electric fencer battery, to a tractor to a 14 hand Pony! None of these items are such that they can be tucked under an arm and walked off with, except perhaps the battery, but you wouldn’t want to go far with that, so a vehicle has been involved.
We are aware that there is a reluctance to ‘bother’ the police unless we’re certain there has been an offence, but the police want to be ‘bothered’ by us when we are aware of vehicles behaving oddly at odd times. We are also aware that vehicles behaving suspiciously are often reported on Facebook – that’s a good way of letting your friends know but doesn’t help the police solve crime.  The current epidemic of out-building thefts is not just confined to farms, but the sheds and garages of domestic premises are also targeted.
So, if you see suspicious activity, at any time of day or night, please report it on 101.
Somerset Loft Insulation Scam Warning
Numerous residents in the Somerset area have reported that they have received telephone calls from individuals who claim to be from government funded companies and that they needed to make an appointment so they could inspect their loft insulation.
A check online reveals that there have been reports from residents all over the country who have had similar calls, so it is highly likely that this is a scam and your area could be approached soon.
Always be wary of any cold callers, whether in person, by email or by phone. Never give out any personal details, especially financial information. If you have any concerns, hang up and contact the company or business the caller claims to represent using a telephone number from a phone book or old invoice or letter. You should always wait at least five minutes before making this call as the fraudster may still be on the line. If possible, use a different phone such as a mobile.
