Online auction sites are regularly targeted by fraudsters advertising desirable items for sale which are below market value, but do not exist. Fraudsters use a variety of techniques to persuade the potential buyer that the item is genuine and that any advanced payment will be protected or reimbursed should the product be faulty or not received.

It will not have escaped your notice on the national news that Operation Yewtree (investigating the Jimmy Saville abuse offences) keeps on making the headlines.

A great deal of training is given to all police officers in how to recognize and deal with Child Sexual Exploitation and all other forms of related abuse. Not only will the police carry out a thorough and sympathetic investigation, but they will also work with other agencies in order to ensure that victims receive the support that they need, not only through the police investigation, but also to help them get their lives back on track, after their ordeal.
It always comes as a surprise when a new location of such abuse is identified. The main thing to learn from this is that abuse can happen anywhere in the country and in any place where young or vulnerable people are present.
