Inheritance fraud usually occurs when you are told that someone very rich has died and you are in line to receive a huge inheritance. A fraudster who claims to be a Business Relations Manager from an overseas bank or legal official contacts you through email or a letter stating that a person sharing your family name has died and left behind a vast amount of money. The fraudster suggests that as you share the same family name as the deceased, you can be the beneficiary of the estate and rather than handing any ‘Inheritance Tax’ over to the government you can split the inheritance with the fraudster.
The fraudster will emphasise the need for secrecy and warn you not to tell anyone else about the deal. To hurry you into making a hasty decision, they will also stress the need to act quickly. 
If you respond to the fraudster, they will ask you to pay various fees – for example: taxes, legal fees, banking fees etc. – so they can release your non-existent inheritance. Each time you make a payment, the fraudsters will come up with a reason why the inheritance cannot be paid out unless you make another payment. If you ask, they will also give you reasons why the fees cannot be taken from your inheritance and have to be paid up front.
If you become reluctant to pay a fee or suggest you cannot afford it, the fraudsters will put pressure on you by reminding you how close you are to receiving a sum of money much greater than the fees you’ve already handed over, and of how much you’ve already paid out. The fraudsters may also ask for your bank details so they can pay the inheritance directly into your bank account. If you hand over your bank details, the fraudsters can use them to empty your account.
You could be a victim of inheritance fraud if:

Good afternoon,

Unfortunately over the past week there has been a number of burglaries in residents sheds and outbuildings in the Kingsley ward. The incidents have taken place in Kingsley and Hatchmere. Some expensive push bikes have been taken and also a motor vehicle from a drive way. The offenders have entered a property and taken the keys from a downstairs room. Please make sure whether you are in or out of your home that all doors and windows are locked.

We are advising all residents to make sure all sheds, garages and outbuildings are locked securely at all times and any expensive items are out of sight to anyone.

If you have any concerns or issues please email PCSO Phil Brandreth on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view or call 101.

Chester Rural End of Month Newsletter March 2016

PS Ian Wilson 
Beat Management Sergeant – Frodsham & Chester Rural.     
Welcome to my second edition of the Chester Rural Police update as the Chester Rural Sergeant. I will endeavor to both circulate the Newsletter monthly at the end of each month and attach to the rural section of the website. Within the newsletter I will update you on crime / anti-social behavior in your local areas, as well as highlighting and celebrate what my staff are / have been doing to support communities and address the on-going issues. I will also highlight Chester Rural’s major priorities for the next month. 
I am trying to communicate with as many of our rural residents as possible with these updates and I am looking to increase our subscribers to Cheshire Alert, so please highlight the advantages of signing up to friends/relatives in the area. Also, (as I know many of you already do) please also print-off and circulate the newsletters to those who don’t have computer / e-mail access. 
As well as the regular Cheshire Alert updates, please be aware of further rural information on the Chester Local Policing Unit twitter page (@PoliceChester) and the Cheshire Police website (

The main issues continue to be parking around school drop off and pickup times. PCSO Brandreth is working with the Head Teacher at Aston by Sutton school to devise ways where we can prevent parents parking on yellow zig-zags for dropping off and in overall general road safety and road awareness. High visibility presence during these times is a main goal.
