Smishing Fraud Alert

staplefordcommunitygroup Help & Advice, Police Alerts, Update & Messages. Tags: 0 Comments

Message sent by
Action Fraud (Action Fraud, Administrator, National)

Smishing – the term used for SMS phishing – is an activity which enables criminals to steal victims’ money or identity, or both, as a result of a response to a text message. Smishing uses your mobile phone (either a smartphone or traditional non-internet connected handset) to manipulate innocent people into taking various actions which can lead to being defrauded.

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has received information that fraudsters are targeting victims via text message, purporting to be from their credit card provider, stating a transaction has been approved on their credit card.

The text message further states to confirm if the transaction is genuine by replying ‘Y’ for Yes or ‘N’ for No. 

Through this method the fraudster would receive confirmation of the victim’s active telephone number and would be able to engage further by asking for the victim’s credit card details, CVV number (the three digits on the back of your bank card) and/or other personal information.

Protect yourself:

  • Always check the validity of the text message by contacting your credit card provider through the number provided at the back of the card or on the credit card/bank statement.
  • Beware of cold calls purporting to be from banks and/or credit card providers.
  • If the phone call from the bank seems suspicious, hang up the phone and wait for 10 minutes before calling the bank back. Again, refer to the number at the back of the card or on the bank statement in order to contact your bank.
  • If you have been a victim of fraud or cyber crime, please report it to Action Fraud at or alternatively by calling 0300 123 2040

Stapleford stands in solidarity with victims of Manchester terror attack

staplefordcommunitygroup Councillor Richard MacRae, Nottingham Evening Post, Stapleford Salvation Army Tags: 0 Comments

Tears flowed at a moving vigil that paid tribute to the victims of the terror attack in Manchester.

Around 100 people gathered at the Walter Park VC Memorial Square, in Stapleford, for the service on Tuesday (May 23) night.

The vigil, organised by Councillor Richard MacRae, was led by Captain Marcus Mylechreest, of Stapleford Salvation Army.

Captain Mylechreest gave a brief speech before urging those in attendance to hold hands and observe a minute’s silence.

Those gathered at the vigil lit candles for the victims of Monday’s terror attack, which killed 22 people – including children – and injured 59.

Captain Mylechreest said: “This is a moment just to stand in solidarity and to stand in sorrow. We’re helpless to be able to do anything else but we always feel we need to do something, so simple statement such as this is very powerful for a local community.

“It really is lovely to see so many people from the Stapleford community to come and say we’re thinking about people whose names we do not know but know they will be sad.”

Councillor MacRae, independent councillor for Stapleford, was pleased to see how many people came out at short notice to show their support for the victims of the tragedy.

He said: “Look how many people are here. There’s people here from all different walks of life – at the end of the day that all goes out the window when it’s something like this. It’s just a way for people to grieve.”

Layla Bibb, 43, of Stapleford, said: “I’ve got two children myself and I just wanted to show my support to all the people that have lost somebody.

“It hit me quite profoundly to be honest. It was awful. I remember going to concerts and feeling safe and that nothing would happen, but they go and this happens. It was just an awful thing.

Tracey Flint, 49, said: “I just wanted to show our solidarity with everyone in the country and in Manchester. I just think it’s appalling. Picking on children is just the lowest of the low.”
