Appeal for information about Camberley double daylight burglaries

In Surrey Police Witness Appeals on April 11th, officers are appealing for information after a family home in Camberley was targeted for the second time by thieves.

The first burglary took place between 3.0pm and 5.0pm on Friday, 31 March when the intruders forced entry through the rear of the property in Browning Close. An untidy search was carried out and a quantity of watches, an 18 carat gold ring with three diamonds and some cash were taken.

The second burglary took place less than a week later on Thursday, 6 April. The intruders forced entry through the rear of the property between 3pm and 5pm before breaking into a safe within the property. A quantity of jewellery and a box of watches were taken.

Officers believe that the two burglaries are linked.

PC Chris Jeacock of West Surrey CID, said: “We believe the two burglaries are linked – both took place during busy periods of the day and both times quantities of jewellery and watches were stolen, causing upset and inconvenience twice to the occupants.

“We are appealing for members of the public to come forward with any information which could assist with the investigation and help return these stolen goods back to their rightful owners and bring those involved to justice.

“I would appeal to any local residents or visitors to the area who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area over the last couple of weeks to get in touch. Similarly, if you are aware of anyone recently coming into money or recently trying to sell watches or jewellery from a dubious background please do the right thing and contact Surrey Police.”

Surrey Police: Law abiding citizen alert

Surrey Police In the know circulate information sent on behalf of Action Fraud (National Fraud Intelligence Bureau)

Fraudsters are sending out a high volume of phishing emails to personal and business email addresses, pretending to come from various email addresses, which have been compromised.

The subject line contains the recipient’s name, and the main body of text is as below:

“Hi, [name]!
I am disturbing you for a very serious reason. Although we are not familiar, but I have significant amount of individual info concerning you. The thing is that, most likely mistakenly, the data of your account has been emailed to me.

For instance, your address is:
[real home address]

I am a law-abiding citizen, so I decided to personal data may have been hacked. I attached the file – [surname].dot that I received, that you could explore what info has become obtainable for scammers. File password is – 2811

Best Wishes,”

The emails include an attachment – a ‘.dot’ file usually titled with the recipient’s name.

This attachment is thought to contain the Banking Trojan Ursniff/Gozi, hidden within an image in the document. The Ursniff Banking Trojan attempts to obtain sensitive data from victims, such as banking credentials and passwords. The data is subsequently used by criminals for monetary gain.

Protect Yourself:

  • Don’t click on links or open any attachments you receive in unsolicited emails or SMS messages: Remember that fraudsters can ‘spoof’ an email address to make it look like one used by someone you trust. If you are unsure, check the email header to identify the true source of communication (you can find out how by searching the internet for relevant advice for your email provider).
  • Do not enable macros in downloads; enabling macros will allow Trojan/malware to be installed onto your device.
  • Always install software updates as soon as they become available. Whether you are updating the operating system or an application, the update will often include fixes for critical security vulnerabilities.
  • Create regular backups of your important files to an external hard drive, memory stick or online storage provider. It is important that the device you back up to is not connected to your computer as any malware infection could spread to that as well.
  • If you think your bank details have been compromised, you should contact your bank immediately.

If you have been affected by this or any other fraud, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040, or visit www.actionfraud.police.uk.
