Card details stolen in Holmes Chapel

Do be careful with your bank cards and hide your PINs.  There has been a spate of ‘skimming’ at the cash point outside the Post Office in Holmes Chapel recently.  ‘Skimming’ is where card details are stolen using a tiny camera and subsequently used fraudulently.  Residents mentioned that they thought cctv had been turned off.

However Ward Councillor Les Gilbert says “The cameras have not been turned off. They will continue to record but will not be subject to live monitoring by the control room unless the Parish Council contributes to the cost. They have previously decided not to spend Council Tax payers’ money in this way but are due to review that decision. The more people who contact Holmes Chapel Parish Council in support of paying for the cameras, the more likely they are to do so.”
