PSNI warns about scammers after £80,000 is taken from victims

first_img Harps come back to win in Waterford PSNI warns about scammers after £80,000 is taken from victims Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Twitter Google+ Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp The PSNI is urging people to be vigilant after more than £80,000 was lost in a spate of scams reported on Wednesday of this week.Chief Superintendent Simon Walls said today scammers don’t care who their victim is, they just want their money and will employ whatever tactic is necessary.The PSNI say scammers employed a variety of means to swindle their victims. Some were cold-called at home by people claiming to be from an online retailer who were told they needed to make a payment. Others reported being threatened with arrest due to an outstanding fine or warrant.One victim reported being swindled out of £40,000 in an online romance scam.Another victim was duped by someone claiming to be from a telecommunications company who told them they would receive a refund of £400.

Another report saw a victim lose £16,000 in an online financial scam.*******************Statement in full -Scam warning after more than £80k lost to fraudstersPolice are warning the public to be vigilant after more than £80,000 was lost in a spate of scams reported on Wednesday (13th August).Scammers employed a variety of means to swindle their victims. Some were cold-called at home by people claiming to be from an online retailer who were told they needed to make a payment. Others reported being threatened with arrest due to an outstanding fine or warrant.One victim reported being swindled out of £40,000 in an online romance scam.Another victim was duped by someone claiming to be from a telecommunications company who told them they would receive a refund of £400. While they did received the £400, unfortunately £15,000 was also taken from their account. Another victim who had bought items for their business online reported losing £11,000. Another report saw a victim lose £16,000 in an online financial scam. Other amounts reported as being lost range from £34 to £2,200.  Police Service Chief Superintendent Simon Walls said: “As these reports show, there is no let-up from scammers who will do whatever they can to con people out of their hard earned money. Scammers don’t care who their victim is, they just want their money and will employ whatever tactic is necessary. “While some of the losses reported to us this week involved significant sums of money to much smaller sums, we understand that any amount of money lost to a scammer is a horrible experience for anyone.”The threat of fraud, both online and offline, against the public is a constant focus for us and I want to take this opportunity to again appeal to people that on no account should anyone disclose their personal or financial details over the phone; always err on the side of caution. “Scammers are creative and will do whatever they can to con people out of money. “It’s also important that if you have older members of family, talk with them and tell them legitimate providers will never seek their personal details, such as banking information, over the phone. This is a really important conversation to have. “Guarding your personal and banking details is essential. Never disclose them to any unauthorised person.”Anyone concerned they have been a victim of a scam either report the matter to Action Fraud via their website www.actionfraud.police.uk or by phoning 0300 123 2040. Police can be contacted on the non-emergency number 101 or you can submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/For further advice and information visit www.nidirect.gov.uk/scamwiseni or the ScamwiseNI Facebook page @scamwiseni .

HR: Positive Resignation – How to hand in your notice

first_img Previous Article Next Article HR: Positive Resignation – How to hand in your noticeShared from missc on 8 Jan 2015 in Personnel Today A question that all HR/recruitment professionals get asked on at least a semi regular basis is: “How should I resign?”. The real answer is, there is no textbook answer as there are so many variables and moving parts involved relevant to e.g. company, manager, your professional style etc. but there are definitely a whole lot of wrong ways to do it. Here’s my 4 small tips that hopefully will offer some piece of mind during what in most cases is an awkward conversation (at best), and help it flow with a little more ease and hopefully avoid friction or burned bridges.Tip 1: No matter how much you might feel like it, don’t use the flaws of the company/manager as your reason for leaving. This is not the time or the place to have this conversation. My advice would be that if there is a burning desire inside you to offer some constructive criticism, do so at an exit interview in a rational and balanced manner. Instead use the positive points of why you have chosen to accept the new role as the reason for your departure.Tip 2: I’m firmly of the belief that we never stop learning and thus regardless of if you feel it has been the most fulfilling role or not, think of the lessons you’ve learned and thank your manager/company for the opportunity to have learned and grown as a professional.Tip 3: Unless extenuating circumstances dictate otherwise, wherever possible be willing to work your full contractual notice period. Make arrangements as such so as to make your transition out of the company as smooth as possible.Tip 4: If not already part of process, offer your time to have an “exit meeting/interview” with your line manager with the aim of trying to shed light on where in your opinion, the organisation could improve. This is where you can offer your CONSTRUCTIVE feedback and show that you are not harbouring any ill feelings due to some negative experiences but instead are aiming to offer your opinion to ensure other employees don’t feel the same thing.These are by no means complicated steps and is relatively “back to basics” kind of stuff but I hope it will give some piece of mind to anyone who may be looking for a little direction on ways to part ways in a positive light.

Sediment-water fluxes of nutrients in an Antarctic coastal environment: influence of bioturbation

first_imgRates of exchanges of nitrate and ammonium across the sediment-water interface were measured in an inshore marine environment at Signy Island, South Orkney Islands, Antarctica, over 6 months from August 1991 to February 1992. The sediment was a source of ammonium to the water column but a sink of nitrate, although nitrate exchange rates were very variable. Concentration profiles of nitrate and ammonium in the sediment porewater corroborated the measured vertical exchanges. Bioturbation, by a largely amphipod benthic infauna which was confined to the top 2 cm of sediment, was investigated experimentally. Removal of bioturbation depressed sedimentary O2 uptake by 33% and sedimentary release of NH4+ by 50%. In contrast, in the absence of bioturbation, the removal of NO3− from the water column by the sediment increased in rate. The measured fluxes of ammonium and nitrate from the sediment did not match with the amount of nitrogen mineralised within the sediment, and urea may account for the difference. It is suggested that the export of nitrogen from the bottom sediment may be significant in sustaining primary production in the Antarctic inshore environment. Ammonium and urea are preferred to nitrate as a nitrogen source by phytoplankton. The nitrate concentrations in the sediment porewater were low, but a large pool of nitrate was identified in the top 0–2 cm layer, which was released by KCl extraction or by freezing of the sediment. This extractable pool of nitrate did not equilibrate with the soluble nitrate pool in the sediment, but seemed to be released from components of the benthic infauna, which were also largely confined to the top 0–2 cm. The physiological role of this nitrate is unknown.last_img read more

Limited grounding-line advance onto the West Antarctic continental shelf in the easternmost Amundsen Sea Embayment during the last glacial period

first_imgPrecise knowledge about the extent of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) at the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM; c. 26.5–19 cal. ka BP) is important in order to 1) improve paleo-ice sheet reconstructions, 2) provide a robust empirical framework for calibrating paleo-ice sheet models, and 3) locate potential shelf refugia for Antarctic benthos during the last glacial period. However, reliable reconstructions are still lacking for many WAIS sectors, particularly for key areas on the outer continental shelf, where the LGM-ice sheet is assumed to have terminated. In many areas of the outer continental shelf around Antarctica, direct geological data for the presence or absence of grounded ice during the LGM is lacking because of post-LGM iceberg scouring. This also applies to most of the outer continental shelf in the Amundsen Sea. Here we present detailed marine geophysical and new geological data documenting a sequence of glaciomarine sediments up to ~12 m thick within the deep outer portion of Abbot Trough, a palaeo-ice stream trough on the outer shelf of the Amundsen Sea Embayment. The upper 2–3 meters of this sediment drape contain calcareous foraminifera of Holocene and (pre-)LGM age and, in combination with palaeomagnetic age constraints, indicate that continuous glaciomarine deposition persisted here since well before the LGM, possibly even since the last interglacial period. Our data therefore indicate that the LGM grounding line, whose exact location was previously uncertain, did not reach the shelf edge everywhere in the Amundsen Sea. The LGM grounding line position coincides with the crest of a distinct grounding-zone wedge ~100 km inland from the continental shelf edge. Thus, an area of ≥6000 km2 remained free of grounded ice through the last glacial cycle, requiring the LGM grounding line position to be re-located in this sector, and suggesting a new site at which Antarctic shelf benthos may have survived the last glacial period.last_img read more

Another independent letting agency bought by rival for its property portfolio

ChCh poetry competition

first_imgThe Christ Churchbased Christopher Tower Poetry competition has launched this year’s competitionwith a major increase in prize money. The competition, for budding poets aged16-18, is now offering a £3,000 first prize, with £1000 and £750 for those insecond and third position. The winner’s school will also receive £500. Theincrease from last years £1500 top prize is “taking it up a gear” according toDr Peter McDonald, competition judge and Christ Churchtutor. The competition was launched at last week’s Cheltenham LiteraryFestival. In previous years, the themes have included “Gravity” and “EarlyMorning”, and Philip Pullman and GillianClarke have been among the judges.ARCHIVE: 2nd week MT 2005last_img read more

Mertonians in time walk tradition

first_imgIn the early hours of Sunday morning, students at Merton College spent the hour gained as the clocks returned to Greenwich Mean Time walking backwards around Fellows’ Quad in full subfusc in an effort to restore a balance in the space-time continuum.The Time Ceremony, as it has been known since its introduction in 1971, is popular with Oxford students. Porters were forced to lock up the college and the event was limited to students of Merton College in an attempt to control numbers.Tradition dictates the students drink port as they walk around the quad. Both Sainsbury’s and Tesco are reported to have sold out of the fortified wine by early Saturday evening.Fortunately for many attendees, the JCR were on hand to provide support and assistance to those who, in the words of JCR President Christian Ruckteschler, were “a little worse for wear”.The validity of the science behind the hour-long mass drunken backwards walk has never been proven conclusively. Several physicists have argued that the science of the ceremony “makes a weird kind of sense,” pointing out that the universe has indeed continued to function and the world has continued to turn after every ceremony performed in the last 40 years. “Better to be safe than sorry”, one medic insisted.One second year commented, “As happens so often, saving the universe is a responsibility that falls to Mertonians.”A group of freshers also pointed to the Time Ceremony as proof that, counter to its reputation, Merton does have a fun side.A PPE student commented, “So this is how Mertonians enjoy themselves… Odd. Personally I’d have chosen to drink rum and coke.”last_img read more

Briefs

first_imgn The Wiltshire town of Melksham has lost its last independent bakers with the closure of Webbs Bakery. Owner Mick Eglin looked back on “32 brilliant years” and said that the bakery had outlasted most of the other independents in the county.He added that trading conditions had been “extremely difficult” and, while emphasising that he was not “an anti-supermarket person”, he suggested that most people now wanted to do their shopping once a week “with a big trolley”.n The Firkins bakery chain is to close four of its shops in the West Midlands and has put them up for sale while it is spending £2.5 million revamping its 57 other outlets across the region.Ian Bolderston, who rescued Firkins in 2006 when it was close to collapse, said the four shops in Wolverhampton, Codsall, Wednesbury and Old Hill were “not part of the company’s long-term portfolio”, but would be sold as going concerns.He said the company was focused on consolidation, with a re-fit for seven shops, as well as plans to open five more.n Hall’s Bakery in Chorley, West Sussex, has appointed Steve Middleton, a former restaurant owner, as operations manager of the bakery’s newly launched catering business.The family firm recently launched a catering service for small functions and corporate meetings. It plans to expand on this.last_img read more
