Fraud (Action Fraud, Administrator, National)
This is an update to a previous alert sent from Action Fraud
in November 2015.
Fraudsters are setting up high specification websites advertising
various electrical goods and domestic appliances. These goods are
below market value and do not exist. The website will state you can
pay via card; however when the purchaser goes to pay, this option is
not available and the payment must be made via bank transfer.
The fraudster entices the purchaser and reassures them it is a
legitimate purchase by using the widely recognised Trusted Shop
Trustmark. They then use the Trustmark fraudulently and provide a
link on the bogus electrical website to another bogus website (which
purports to be Trusted Shops). This website shows a fake certificate
purporting to be from Trusted Shops and provides thousands of
reviews for the bogus electrical website. These reviews are all
fraudulent. The website has not been certified by Trusted Shops and
therefore the purchaser is not covered by the Trusted Shop
- Check the authenticity of the website before making any
purchases. Conduct a ‘Whois’ search on the website which will
identify when the website has been created- Be wary of newly
formed domains. You can conduct this search using the following
- Conduct online research in relation to the website, company
name and the business address provided to identify any poor
feedback or possible irregularities.
- Check the Trusted Shops Facebook page where warnings about
websites using their Trustmark are published. If you are in
doubt about the legitimacy of a Trustmark then you can contact
Trusted Shops on 0203 364 5906 or by email
They will confirm whether they have certified that website.
- Payments made via bank transfer are not protected should you
not receive the item. Therefore always try to make the payment
via PayPal or a credit card where you have some payment cover
should you not receive your product.
- If the item advertised seems too good to be true, then it
If you, or anyone you know, have been affected by this fraud or any
other scam, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or
Event Organisation Advice from SNDC
Following a recent fatality involving a bouncy castle at a fair (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-35906226)
the Commercial & Business Support Team have produced the attached
guidance to help organisers of village fetes and similar events.
These events are great community occasions and it is hoped the advice
sheets and checklists will help organisers consider some of the key
hazards at their event. If the Parish or Town Council is not
directly involved in organising these events, I would be grateful if you
could forward the information to the relevant person.
More detailed information can be found on the Health and Safety
Executive website at
or on the Northamptonshire Resilience Forum website under the Planning
