#MoleValley officers attended Ranmore Common Rd after cyclists / vehicles - were swerving to avoid this lot! http://www.molevalley.gov.uk/index.cfm?articleid=16891
OAP scammed / cash stolen North St #Leatherhead after using ATM! If you can - use the one inside the bank - remain vigilant especially if you are approached by someone asking for change just after you have used the ATM - it’s not impolite to say NO!
Stand close to the terminal. Always shield the keypad with your free hand, purse or wallet, and your body, to avoid anything or anyone seeing you enter your PIN. This will protect your PIN from anyone who might be looking over your shoulder, and also help to keep your PIN safe if a fraudster has set up a hidden camera to film the keypad.
Stay alert and put your personal safety first. If someone is crowding or watching you, cancel the transaction and alert a member of staff. Do not accept help from seemingly well-meaning strangers and never allow yourself to be distracted.
Have your card company's 24 hour contact number stored in your mobile phone. If your card is retained, stay at the ATM and contact your bank immediately.
If you spot anything unusual about the machine, or there are signs of tampering, do not use it.
If you think you have been a victim of fraud, you should contact your bank immediately.

Meadowbank PSPO Dorking
Public spaces protection orders (PSPOs) are intended to deal with a particular nuisance or problem, in a specific area, that is detrimental to the local community's quality of life. It does so by imposing conditions on the use of that area which apply to everyone. PSPOs impose conditions or restrictions on people using that area to deal with particular issues such as the consumption of alcohol in a defined area.
Councillor Lucy Botting, MVDC's Executive Member for Wellbeing, said: "Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the public consultation held during July and August. The reported number of instances of anti-social behaviour remains low, but I would like to reassure residents that we will continue to work with our partners and use all our resources and powers to tackle anti-social behaviour.
"I am pleased to announce that we have secured £8,000 from the Police & Crime Commissioner's Office and Surrey County Council's Mole Valley Local Committee to fund new CCTV to supplement the existing cameras in place at Meadowbank. The additional CCTV will only help to deter or identify anyone who breaches the PSPO in the future."
