WhatsApp Scam

Criminals are targeting WhatsApp users by

posing as a friend and asking for a security

code. The scam begins when a criminal get

s access to another WhatsApp account which

has you listed as a contact.  The criminal, posing

as your friend or someone that’s a member of

a WhatsApp group you’re in, will then send you

seemingly normal messages to try and start a

conversation with you. However, around the

same time you will receive a text message from

WhatsApp with a six-digit code. This is because

the criminal has been trying to login to WhatsApp

using your mobile number. The criminal will claim

that they sent you their code by accident and

ask you to help them by sending it to them. Once

the criminal has this code, they can login to your

WhatsApp account and lock you out.

The criminal will then use the same tactic

with your WhatsApp contacts in an effort

to steal more accounts and use them to

perpetrate fraud.

What you need to do:

Set up two-step verification to give an

 extra layer of protection to your account:

Tap Settings > Account >Two-step verification > Enable.

THINK. CALL. If a family member or friend

makes an unusual request on WhatsApp,

always call the person to confirm their identity.

Never share your account’s activation code

(that’s the 6 digit code you receive via SMS)

You can report spam messages or block a

sender within WhatsApp. Press and hold on

the message bubble, select ‘Report’ and

then follow the instructions.

If you have been a victim of fraud or cyber

crime, report it to Action Fraud or 0300 123 2040.

06.09.22 - Further case confirmed near Bridlington

The Animal and Plant Health Agency have identified

a confirmed case of Avian Influenza near Bempton. 

There is a well-established national contingency plan for

dealing with animal disease, which generally involves

culling the affected livestock and introducing some

animal movement restrictions close by the farm. 

Two zones have been set up - a protection zone

(3k from the infected premise) and surveillance zone -

(10k from the affected premise).  You may see tha

t Animal Disease Control Zone signs have been placed

on the main roads at the 10k boundary.  Your

ward / parish falls within either the 3k or 10k restriction

zones, this link shows the zones

 https://defra.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=8cb1883eda5547c6b91b5d5e6aeba90d .  

People who own poultry and birds need to take

specific precautions because of the outbreak,

which varies depending on which zone you are in. 

There is a requirement to keep all birds housed,

and either to record or prevent poultry movements.
