Fraudsters regularly hack into personal online accounts to obtain details which will allow them to defraud you. To prevent fraudsters, it’s very important to use strong passwords when setting up and accessing online accounts and online banking.

Passwords should be memorable enough not to have to write them down and long enough to be unique and hard to guess, which will ensure they are less vulnerable to being stolen. If it is not possible to remember passwords a password manager could be used to store them securely.
Protect yourself:

• Make sure passwords are memorable so that you don’t have to write them down. Make sure they are unique.

• Th!nk ab0ut how you could change the l3tters in your n0rmal passw0rds to make them more difficult to gue55!

• Use long, non-dictionary words and use different ones for each of your personal accounts and online banking. Make sure you change them regularly.

• Make sure passwords are not stored on devices that have shared access by other people, for example in internet cafes and when using other public Wi-Fi.

If you believe you have become a victim of account hacking, change your passwords immediately and report to Action Fraud:

Dear All,

The Neighbourhood and Home Watch movement is one of the largest voluntary crime prevention initiatives across the country. Groups typically operate in a variety of communities to help bring neighbours together who want to look out for each other, creating strong, friendly, active communities where crime and antisocial behaviour is less likely to happen.

Message from Inspector Keith Curbishley
Welcome to this first edition of the New Year. I hope that you all had a peaceful Christmas and enjoyed the company of friends and Family. Your local officers have been working hard to keep our area safe over the Christmas and New Year period. I am sure that you will have gathered from my regular reports that officers rely heavily on prompt calls from members of the public, providing them with detailed and accurate information on which to act. I am sure that I can rely on you to continue this in 2015.
The continuing changes in crime patterns, brought about by developments in technology and evolving legislation, plus the financial constraints put on the police force as a result of national austerity measures, means that we constantly have to review and adapt the way in which our Neighbourhood policing unit operates. The best way to keep up to date with changes and developments is to register with the various communication media that Cheshire police and are both useful websites. You can also follow Western Rural NPU on Twitter. I understand that many readers are reticent about engaging with modern technology for such matters. However, it is a fact of life that as technology develops, people need to adapt to the changes it brings in order to reap the benefits. (Consider the impact that motor vehicles had on the way that society works – information technology is having just as much impact!). As more people engage with the police via these media, the more information and advice the police can pass out, which will hopefully result in less opportunity for criminal activity! Please recommend our communications to friends and family.
