Contactless bank card/credit card fraud, known as skimming or electronic pickpocketing, is on the rise. With many of our friends and family travelling both in the UK and abroad during both the holiday season, and,of course, following Wales in Euro 2016, we would like to make you aware of the work of Flintshire & Wrexham Online Watch Link Association and the availability of the Owl Card Minder.
In supporting crime prevention/reduction the Association introduced OWL (online watch link - http://www.owlcymru.org) system as a crime prevention tool for the people and partnership organisations in 2007, and is now a crime prevention tool enabled by the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales.
It is an interactive communication and crime prevention tool that underpins watch schemes and supports not just neighbourhoods, but schools, community halls, farms, businesses, shops and groups such as carers, allotment holders, parks and community areas and horse owners.
OWL provides daily crime alerts and other information, and has developed over the years a basis for community intelligence and prevention of crimes and protecting potential victims. Crimes, whether they are shoplifting, stealing farm animals or machinery, or racially motivated, even stealing vegetables from allotments, is unacceptable and threatens the integrity of our communities.
By PROTECTING your card, you can PROTECT your cash.
