Beware of rogue traders operating in the area. For example, in #Leatherhead on the 13th of Nov involved a cold call at a residential address where a price was agreed for some gardening work and the final price demand was disproportionately higher than that originally agreed.
How to spot purchase fraud:
You’re offered a heavily discounted or considerably cheaper price – does it sound too good to be true?
You’re asked to pay by bank transfer instead of using the online platform’s secure payment options.
You receive an email receipt/invoice that appears to be genuine – but the email address domain doesn’t match that of the genuine senders.
The website that you’re purchasing from was only launched days/weeks ago.
Our advice offers best practice for you to follow alongside practical crime prevention methods: from basic hints and tips to more detailed strategies.

Take your email security to another level.
Your email is where you keep your most personal and financial information.
If a cybercriminal accesses your email, they could:
· access your other online accounts using the 'forgot password' feature (which often sends you an email)
· access personal or business information and use this to scam you or people you know.
