Alert message sent 11/10/2021 15:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


This is a message from Val McPherson Vice Chair of Princes Risborough & District Neighbourhood Watch Association.
I am sharing an email I sent to my own area, especially the burglary on a farm as this can happen anywhere and our NW Association covers a wide area that has many surrounding farms.

HMRC  Phone Scam
I have had 3 calls in 24 hours from – T : 01865 - 638121 (and – T : 01865 638032). Both numbers are from the Oxford area.The prevailing review of – T : 01865 - 638121 indicates that it is HMRC scam call !

Please be warned that scammers may call you from this number pretending to be from HMRC and tells you that you will be arrested for unpaid tax, please do not  worry.
You can rest assured that this is not the Inland Revenue but is a well-known scam and there is no case against you.

You can also report suspicious activity to the HMRC’s phishing team Forward scam text messages to the HMRC on 60599 - you will be charged at your network rate.

Forward emails to – E : phishing[at]hmrc.gov.uk. Send details (Date: 01/10/2021 18:00:50, Phone number, content of the call) of a phone to – E : phishing@hmrc.gov.uk

Theft from a farm
I have been informed by a Co-ordinator that there has been a burglary at a Farm north west of Ilmer on Friday night 8/10.21. All the monitors and receivers from all the tractors and combines were stolen. The police are aware of the situation and informed the farmer that there is an increase in  rural crime within the area.

A tip: Set up or join a WhatsApp group with other farmers to exchange information on rural crime, including unusual activity  such as sharing number plates of dubious vehicles, details of livestock thefts etc.
