VANL and ERVAS merger exploration

Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire and East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS) Ltd are exploring the potential the benefits of the two organisations merging. No decision has been made at this time, however we will be embarking on a thorough consultation process, with all who have an interest in the organisations – first and foremost members, followed by partners and funders.

The main reason we are exploring this is to strengthen voluntary sector support across the areas and improve long term sustainability of both organisations.

Other reasons for exploring the merger include:

  • Both organisations are already local infrastructure organisation’s with very similar charitable objectives and share a boundary

  • Both organisations hold the same values and ethos

  • It will provide increased skills and capacity to meet current and new needs

  • It increases the range of specialism’s available for both areas

  • Retains local memberships

  • Retains services with the voluntary sector at the heart

  • Achieves savings providing opportunities for investing in growing and developing services

You can get involved now by completing the first stage questionnaire.

What is Not In Our Community?
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) for Humberside has released a short film to explain the various ways that their local campaign to raise awareness of Child Exploitation, Not In Our Community, can be accessed. It follows recognition and acclaim for the programme at a national policing conference earlier this month.

Police and Crime Commissioner Jonathan Evison was one of just five Police and Crime representatives who had the opportunity to present to the conference and showcase innovative local practice to improve community safety and crime prevention. The Humberside presentation was later announced as the winner.

Introducing the campaign PCC Evison said: “Early Intervention is vital to provide young people and communities with the tools to protect themselves.

“With investment from my office, the Not In Our Community campaign has been developed into a multi-channelled way to raise awareness of child exploitation across the Humberside Police Force area. We have platforms with content aimed to raise awareness in young people and separate platforms with tailored messaging for parents, professionals and communities.

“We use innovative ways to engage with young people such as high impact, locally produced films where the viewer can choose what happens next, as well as music videos, animations, and interactive online learning.”

To find out more, watch the new ‘What is Not In Our Community?’ film HERE, which explains more about the campaign and how young people, parents, carers, teachers and professionals can all access and make the most of this Humber-focused campaign to raise awareness of child exploitation.

Visit www.notinourcommunity.org for the full suite of campaign resources.

Everyone has a role to play in protecting our young people and any concerns should be reported to Humberside Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency. Alternatively, all crime can be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Crimestoppers’

Fearless campaign is available at www.Fearless.org – Young people can submit anonymous reports online and the site provides non-judgemental information and advice about crime and criminality specifically for young people.

Hundreds Fall Victim To Lottery Scams In Just Seven Months


What is lottery fraud?
Criminals will contact unsuspecting victims informing them they have won a lottery or prize draw. The victim is then informed that they will need to pay an advance fee in order to receive their winnings. In reality, the winnings are non-existent and it is an attempt to steal the victims money, personal or financial information.Between April and October 2021, Action Fraud received 629 reports of lottery fraud, with 89 per cent of reports mentioning well-known prize draws. Impersonation of People’s Postcode Lottery accounted for almost half (49 per cent) of all reports. Almost three quarters of victims (70 per cent) were aged over 50, with those aged over 65 accounting for 40 per cent of reports.

Fraudsters use gift cards as a form of payment as they can be easily redeemed and sold on. The criminals don’t need the physical card to redeem the value as they ask the victims to share the serial code on the back of the card with them. In other instances, victims reported being asked for personal and financial information in order to obtain their alleged winnings. Some victims reported providing their bank details thinking they would be sent a small payment to verify the account. In reality, criminals will use these details to steal the victim’s money.

How to protect yourself
Stop: Unsolicited offers of large sums of money in return for a small upfront payment should always raise a red flag. Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.

Challenge: Could it be fake? Remember, you can’t win a prize in a competition you didn’t enter. It’s okay to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you.

Protect: If you think you’ve been a victim of fraud, contact your bank immediately and report it to Action Fraud online at actionfraud.police.uk or by calling 0300 123 2040.
You can find further protection advice around lotteries and competition on the Gambling Commission’s website.

The Best Way To Keep Hackers Out of Your Online Accounts


Enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) is the single most important thing you can do to improve the security of your online accounts.

What is 2FA?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a way of strengthening the login security of your online accounts. It’s similar to how an ATM works. You need both your debit card (first factor) and your PIN (second factor) to get access your account and withdraw cash. The main objective is better security. If your card is stolen, they still need your PIN. If your PIN is stolen, they still need your card.

Enabling 2FA will help to stop hackers from getting into your accounts, even if they have your password.

How do I enable 2FA on my accounts?
Here are links you can use to enable 2FA on some of the most popular online services and apps:

Which? Scam Alert

Scammers targeting gaming accounts
Laura got in touch with us when her daughter’s gaming account was hacked and her saved debit card details were used to spend £800 on in-game items that were ‘gifted’ to other users.

But the games platform claimed that it wasn’t fraud and would not refund her because the right username and password were used to access the account at the time of the transactions.

We explain more about what happened and how

£12,000 of savings stolen from Barclays account
Scammers are becoming more devious when it comes to impersonation scams. This particular one impersonated Barclays via a text supposedly from its fraud team and an 02476 Barclays phone number, which left account holder David at a loss of more than £12,000.

Here’s how Barclays responded and why we stepped in to help David get reimbursed

Common scams: Black Friday and Cyber Monday
Almost £2.5 million was stolen during the 2020 Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales last year alone – an average loss of almost £550 per victim. Here, we run down common scams to avoid and provide tips to keep you safe while you shop this weekend.

Omicron variant PCR test phishing
Wasting no time at all, scammers are already sending fake emails about the new Omicron variant of Covid, with the aim of stealing personal data and bank details.

Here are some examples we’ve received, and advice on how to spot and report a NHS scam.

Fake NHS emails and texts

Impersonation scams on WhatsApp
Fraudsters are posing as family members on WhatsApp in order to manipulate victims into transferring money. This stems from the verification message trick we covered in May, where you receive an unexpected but genuine text message from WhatsApp containing a verification code. The text is triggered by fraudsters entering your number into WhatsApp in an attempt to log in to your account. Next, one of your ‘contacts’ will message you via the app to try and persuade you to give them the code you’ve just received.

Stay alert for this scam, especially if you know anyone who was caught out by it. Here are steps you can take to further protect your WhatsApp account.

HMRC tax scams
HMRC has released a fraud warning urging all self-assessment taxpayers to watch out for fake tax communications ahead of the tax return deadline on 31 January 2022.

Many HMRC related scams are occurring – scammers will commonly text or email people to say they’re owed a tax rebate from HMRC, often with a link that asks the person to fill out their personal details in order to claim it. This is usually a way to harvest people’s personal details to use in other scams.

Here are the HMRC scams to watch out for

Scammers impersonating the DVLA
Be alert to emails and texts claiming to be from the DVLA. Scammers impersonating the DVLA have been targeting motorists in recent weeks with attempts to gather personal and financial details from them.

Find out what else the DVLA has issued warnings about and how to spot these.

Fake Primark gift card email
Phishing emails promising Primark gift card ‘rewards’ are circulating again. They work by claiming that you need to ‘activate the delivery’ in order to receive the reward, and even attempt to deceive you by including ‘your account information’.

However, this time it appears that the scammers behind them have spoofed the domain of online retailer Wayfair in order to send them. Here’s what they look like.

15M Lost To Online Shopping Scams Last Christmas


Online shopping scams cost shoppers £15.4 million over the Christmas period last year.

New data from Action Fraud, the national reporting centre for fraud and cyber crime, reveals that 28,049 shoppers were conned out of their money when shopping online over the Christmas period last year – an increase of almost two thirds (61 per cent) when compared to the same period in the previous year.

Ahead of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Action Fraud is warning the public to take extra care when shopping online as reports of online shopping fraud have continued to surge. Here are some simple tips to help you and your family enjoy a secure online shopping experience this festive season.

Where to shop
Buying from an online store you haven’t used before? Carry out some research first, or ask a friend or family member if they’ve used the site and about their experiences before completing the purchase.

Your information
Only create an account if necessary or to save you effort if you’re going to use that site a lot in the future. Be cautious if the website asks you for details that are not required for your purchase, such as your mother’s maiden name or the name of your primary school.

Payment method
When it’s time to pay for your items, check there’s a ‘closed padlock’ icon in the browser’s address bar. Use a credit card when shopping online, if you have one. Most major credit card providers protect online purchases.

Phishing
Some of the messages you receive about amazing offers may contain links to fake websites. If you’re unsure about a link, don’t use the it – go separately to the website. Report suspicious emails you receive by forwarding them to: report@phishing.gov.uk. Report suspicious text messages by forwarding them to: 7726.

Email accounts:
Make sure that your really important accounts (such as your email account or online shopping accounts) are protected by strong passwords that you don’t use anywhere else.

Need help changing your email account password? You can use these links to find step by step instructions: Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Outlook, BT, AOL Mail.

If things go wrong
If you’ve lost money to an online shopping scam, tell your bank and report it as a crime to Action Fraud (for England, Wales and Northern Ireland) or Police Scotland (for Scotland). By doing this, you’ll be helping to prevent others becoming victims of cyber crime.
