POLICE in Wick are reminding members of the public not to pass personal information, particularly bank details, over the telephone. This follows reports of a fraudulent scheme ongoing via telephone whereby elderly people are targeted at home and offered an electrical money saving device called a ‘power saver’. This device is allegedly plugged into a socket within the home and saves a high percentage on future electric bills. It is retailed at £349, however, it is offered to the caller for £99. Anyone who believes they have been the victim of such a crime or has any information regarding this type of activity is asked to contact Wick police on 01955 603551. Information can also be left anonymously by using CRIMESTOPPERS 0800 555 111.

The Crimestoppers Trust is a charity. The only charity which leads to the conviction of criminals. It is not part of the Police force.
It is operated by local boards, the members of which are all unpaid volunteers. It works to bring together the Police, the Media, Local Authorities, the community and Business in the fight against crime.
Crimestoppers are ordinary citizens who do not want to see their lifestyle, their freedom from fear and their community threatened by criminal activity.
Its indisputable strength is that it offers callers with information on criminals or criminal activity the guarantee of freedom from retribution because calls are anonymous, they are not recorded and cannot be traced.
