Police have appealed for the publics help to find a stolen bicycle which had been specially customised for its owner.

The specialized Hardrock mountain bike was stolen from the east stand of Middlesbrough Football Club last Thursday the 21st September.

Now officers are asking anyone who has been offered the bike for sale or who may know the whereabouts of the bike are asked to contact PC Richard Belton on the non emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Action Fraud is warning people to be wary following reports of a letter claiming to be from the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau.

The letter is being sent to victims of fraud offering them the opportunity to have their money returned.

To receive the money, it asks them to send their personal details to a South African bank.

However, it uses the NFIB branding and the name of the City of London Police’s Commissioner to appear credible.

The fraudsters are sending these letters so that they are able to gather bank details and defraud people who have already fallen victim to fraud.

It takes advantage of peoples’ trust in order to steal money from those who have already fallen victim.

Police advice is that if you are unsure about a letter you have received from the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, please contact Action Fraud directly before giving away any of your personal details.
