  • SCAM
    Article: Feb 26, 2019
    By Alert from Kent County Council Public Protection

    Action Fraud has received several reports where fraudsters are claiming to be landlords of properties offered for rent online.

    How it works

    • Prior to viewing a property, the criminal requests that the individual pays a deposit.
    • After the victim pays the money, the scammer sends a bogus email purporting to be from a Tenancy Deposit Scheme confirming they have received their deposit.
    • This email is false! The money was sent directly to the criminals' account.
    • The victim is left out of pocket and without the home they thought they were renting.

    We were both elected to Sandgate Parish Council in 2011, and have served as Councillors, and nominally "leaders" of the Conservative and Liberal Democrat groups on Sandgate Parish Council ever since.

    We are are both members and activists in our respective Parties, both been so for decades, and plan to remain so. We both see a strong role for Parties, especially our own Parties, in politics at District, County, National and European level, and have both served as Councillors at both District and County levels.

    The cabinet meeting at which the Princes Parade business case was to be discussed has been postponed.

    Here is the email from the council:

    "As you are aware, the report relating to the business case for Princes Parade was due to be discussed by Overview and Scrutiny on 29 January and Cabinet on 30 January but given the level of interest the item had generated, the Leader of the Council has suggested a separate meeting be held specifically to consider the report.
