Action Fraud, together with the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau and the City of London Police, are working in partnership with Rugby World Cup 2015 organisers to disrupt those entities seeking to sell Rugby World Cup 2015 tickets without permission from the official provider.

We would like rugby fans and the general public to be aware that they should only purchase tickets from official sources and avoid being scammed.

Message from Inspector Keith Curbishley
This month, I would like to concentrate my message on some of the measures you can take to prevent you from becoming a victim of crime.
Identity theft sounds innocuous, but can have long term effects on individuals’ ability to obtain future credit. Offenders will use a variety of means to gather basic information about you (name, address, phone number etc) and then use this to try to gather extra information – possibly by phoning you up, pretending to be from a bank or computer company, or going through rubbish in your wheelie bin for un-shredded documentation etc. They will then use this additional information to apply for things such as financial loans or home delivery shopping, which they will intercept before it reaches your door. Please treat your personal information with the same care that you take of your credit cards or cheque books – destroy or shred any paperwork with such details and do not divulge personal information to unsolicited callers.

A lottery scam takes place when criminals pretend that you have won a prize, often a lottery.  The people most likely to fall victim to this tend to be over the age of 60 (although younger people do fall victim too) – but we know that it is often close family members of victims who spot the tell-tale signs of the fraud.
