DRIVE HARD BARGAIN ON CRIME
PEOPLE have to be vigilant with their personal security during the Christmas and New Year sales. They must not leave items of value in trolleys, and purses or wallets unattended. Criminals are predominantly opportunistic and will strike on easy targets. Nothing will ruin a bargain hunters' day like having their valuable property taken. This especially applies to credit cards, which are criminals' favourites for fraud.
