Words of warning

Thieves are targeting older people with the intention of robbing them of valuables. The thieves operate as groups of women who aim to distract you and at the same time steal whatever they can. Although we all try to be helpful, when people stop you to ask for directions, they are not always innocent.

Watch out for vehicles driven by a young male with young ladies inside and be suspicious. If they stop and ask you for directions to the medical centre, walk away. Whatever you do, do not let them hug you because that is when they will steal your watch, your wallet or whatever else has caught their eye.

The notice also warns us of the scam where thieves place a scanner on automatic cash machines to steal your card number or prevent the bank notes from being delivered.
