Croots Farm Shop Reopens

Steve and Kay Croot write:

We're delighted to tell you that the Farm Shop will be re-opening for walk-in shopping from 10am today, Wednesday 29th July. More »

Having taken advice from the relevant authorities, we are pleased to welcome customers back into our store after closing briefly as a precaution following a family member testing positive for Covid-19.

Our butchery, bread counter, and vegetable and grocery areas are operating as normal but, with a number of staff unavailable, we apologise that the deli counter is temporarily closed. We hope it won't be too long before we're running at full steam once again.

We thank you for your understanding and support and look forward to seeing you. Our click and collect service remains available.'

Police Alert: Courier Fraud

Police Alert: Courier Fraud

Derbyshire Police write:

Following an increased number of calls to us, we would like to raise awareness about a scam which has recently been targeting the Derwent and Oakwood and Quarndon and Kirk Langley areas. More »

The call is from someone pretending to be a police officer who tells the person who answers, on some occasions that they are calling from the Serious Fraud Investigations Unit, and on others that they are a Detective Constable calling from London. The caller goes on to say that they are investigating the unauthorised use of that person's bank card and advises that the person should not tell anyone about this call as it may jeopardise the police investigation.

We're aware that a number of different names have been used by this scammer including DC Ryan, DC Morris, DC Clarke and Sergeant Wiggins.

If you receive such a call you should not give out any personal information and hang up the call immediately.

We know that this type of call can be linked to courier fraud.

This means that victims will be encouraged to withdraw funds from their bank account or give bank cards to a courier, arranged by the 'police officer' making the call under the guise of 'assisting with a police investigation'.

The police will never contact you asking for banking information or request that you withdraw money from an account to aid an investigation.

Fraudsters often target geographical areas where they know elderly or vulnerable people live, so we would ask that if you have family or friends who are vulnerable in any way that you make them aware of this scam.

If you, or someone you know, receives a call of this nature please contact us as soon as possible. We will then assess the area that is being targeted, alert the banks and endeavour to protect other local residents to prevent any financial loss.Facebook – send us a private message to /DerbyshireConstabulary
Twitter – direct message our contact centre on @DerPolContact
Website – complete the online contact form www.derbyshire.police.uk/Contact-Us
Phone – call us on 101.
You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing you can also text on 07800 002414 or email us at deafsms@derbyshire.pnn.police.uk

On receiving a call of this nature please terminate the call, wait 5 minutes and ensure you can hear a dial tone before calling 101, to call your bank please use the number found on the back of your card. All reports of this nature also need to be reported to Action Fraud 0300 120 2040 or online https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

For further fraud advice and prevention information please contact your local Fraud Protect Officer Tammy.Barnes@derbyshire.police.uk
