Police are seeing a spike in scam reports

Comments Off on Police are seeing a spike in scam reports

Dyfed-Powys Police is warning people to be on their guard after an increase in reports of attempted scams in recent days.

DC Gareth Jordan from Dyfed-Powys Police’s Economic Crime Team said: “We have seen a spike in reports saying they have received phone calls from people pretending to be police officers and telling them that their credit card has been cloned.

“We’ve had 11 such calls in the past two days and they appear to be targeting the Ceredigion area.

“So far no-one has reported any losses but we may only be hearing from those that recognise this is a scam.

“Often the realisation of these crimes may come weeks later – when the criminal has been successful.”

DC Jordan said the caller tells the potential victim they are from Paddington or Paddington Green Police Station Specialist Fraud Team.

If they are calling a landline, they tell the recipient to dial 999 to confirm it is the police, but the line is kept open by the caller.

The aim is to get the victim to either part with their credit card details, or possibly to get them to withdraw money and have it picked up by courier (Courier Fraud).

Remember:

  • The police will not phone you and ask you to convey details of your debit or credit card
  • The police will not contact you to tell you your debit or credit card has been cloned.
  • The police, or your bank, will never ask you to withdraw money or transfer it to a different account
  • They will also never ask you to reveal your full banking password or PIN
  • Phone a family member or friend to make sure the line has cleared
    and then phone 101 to report to police

Audit Notice 2021-22

Comments Off on Audit Notice 2021-22

Electors’ rights under the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004

The basic position

By law, any interested person has the right to inspect the council’s accounts. If you are entitled and registered to vote in local council elections, then you (or your representative) also have the right to ask the Auditor General questions about them or challenge an item of account contained within them.

The right to inspect the accounts

When a local government body has finalised its accounts for the previous financial year, it must advertise that they are available for people to look at. Having given reasonable notice of your intentions, you then have 20 working days to look through the accounts and supporting documents. You will be able to make copies of the accounts and most of the relevant documents from the body. You will probably have to pay a copying charge.

The right to ask the auditor questions about the accounts

You can only ask the Auditor General questions about the accounts. The Auditor General does not have to answer questions about the body’s policies, finances, procedures or anything else not related to the accounts. Your question must be about the accounts that are subject to audit. The Auditor General does not have to say whether he thinks something the council has done, or an item in its accounts, is lawful or reasonable.

The right to object to the accounts

If you think that the body has spent money that they should not have, or that someone has caused a loss to the body deliberately or by behaving irresponsibly, you can object to the Auditor General by sending a formal ‘notice of objection’, which must be in writing to the address below. You must tell the Auditor General why you are objecting. The Auditor General must reach a decision on your objection. If you are not happy with that decision, you can appeal to the courts.

You may also object if you think that there is something in the accounts that the Auditor General should discuss with the council or tell the public about in a ‘public interest report’. Again, you must give your reasons in writing to the Auditor General at the address below. In this case, the Auditor General must decide whether to take any action. The Auditor General will normally, but does not have to, give reasons for their decision and you cannot appeal to the courts. You may not use this ‘right to object’ to make a personal complaint or claim against the body.

If you wish to make a personal complaint or claim, you should take these complaints to your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau, local Law Centre, or your solicitor. You may also be able to complain to the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales if you believe that a Member of the body has broken the Code of Conduct for Members. The Ombudsman can be contacted at: 1 Old Field Rd, Pencoed, Bridgend CF35 5LJ, (tel: (01656) 641 150).

What else you can do

Instead of objecting, you can give the Auditor General information that is relevant to their responsibilities. For example, you can simply tell the Auditor General if you think that something is wrong with the accounts or about waste and inefficiency in the way the council runs its services. You do not have to follow any set time limits or procedures. The Auditor General does not have to give you a detailed report of their investigation into the issues you have raised, but they will usually tell you the general outcome.

A final word

Local government bodies, and so local taxpayers, must meet the costs of dealing with questions and objections. When the Auditor General decides whether to take your objection further, one of a series of factors they must take into account includes the costs that will be involved. They will only continue with the objection if it is in the public interest to do so. If you appeal to the courts, you might have to pay for the action yourself.

If you wish to contact the Auditor General, please write to: Community Council Audits, Audit Wales, 24 Cathedral Road, Cardiff CF11 9LJ

Registration for the 2022 garden waste recycling collection service is now open

Comments Off on Registration for the 2022 garden waste recycling collection service is now open

Residents across Powys can now subscribe to this season’s easy, clean and simple garden waste recycling collection service, offered by the county council.

Residents are now able to subscribe to the service for the 2022 season by visiting www.powys.gov.uk/gardenwaste or by calling 01597 827465.

The annual subscription of £39 includes the hire of a 240-litre wheeled bin and fortnightly collections of your garden waste between 28 February and the 2 December. With 20 possible collections, the service works out at less than £2 for each full bin of material collected and recycled. A smaller 120-litre bin is available at a reduced rate for households with small gardens, or compostable garden waste sacks for those who have their non-recyclable rubbish collected in purple bags.

Residents who already benefited from using the service in 2021 will be contacted shortly to remind them to re-subscribe for another season. Once registered for the 2022 season, they will receive a sticker to place on their green wheeled bin to indicate to the crew that they have signed up for 2022.

New subscribers to the service will have their green wheeled bin delivered by the council within 10 working days, so make sure you sign up early to benefit from all the scheduled collections starting at the end of February.

Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Recycling and Waste, said: “It has been another tough winter for us all and we are all very much looking forward to the arrival of Spring to help lift all our spirits. Once the nights begin to draw out and the weather turns finer, many of us will be keen to get out into the garden once more.

“The collection service, which costs less than £2 per collection if people subscribe now, means that residents have an easy, clean and simple way of getting rid of their garden waste, with the knowledge that it will all be recycled and turned into compost.

“Signing up to the collection service will not only mean that residents don’t have to get the inside of their cars dirty and covered in grass cuttings and twigs, but it is also a sustainable and cost-effective way of recycling your garden waste.”

Residents not subscribing to the service will still be able to compost their garden waste at home or take it to one of the five household waste recycling centres in Powys.
