DON’T LEAVE PIN CODE IN BAGS

Weekend Courier - - Street Watch -

PO­LICE are warn­ing shop­pers not to have their PIN code any­where in their bags as of­fend­ers are with­draw­ing large amounts of cash within min­utes of steal­ing the cards. Po­lice also re­quest that every­one who owns an iPhone or An­droid mo­bile phone down­load the ‘Find My Phone’ app. There are sim­i­lar apps avail­able for iPads, Tablets and Lap­tops. This al­lows po­lice to track the item to its ex­act lo­ca­tion. Make a note of the 15digit IMEI num­ber which can be found by key­ing in *#06# into most mod­els of the phone. This helps po­lice to iden­tify the own­ers of stolen phones that are found in the pos­ses­sion of of­fend­ers.
