Police Advice – Quad Bike Security
July there were a number of quad bike thefts in Tayside and Fife.
If you own a quad bike, you should take steps to make them as secure
as you can. Here are a few simple tips:
• If your bike is stored in a shed or building, do not leave
the door open during the day. You do not know who may be looking
around your farm when you are not there.
• Security mark your bike with SelectaDNA and advertise this
with prominent signage around the farm.
• Buy a substantial chain and use it to attach your bike to
other plant or to the building or floor.
• Use a ground anchor set in concrete and chain your bike
• Purchase a padlock alarm and fit this to the chain.
• Park larger plant or other machinery so that it restricts
access to quad bikes.
Perth Police Station may still have some
SelectaDNA kits for sale at just £20 per kit. (RRP £59.50).
Action Fraud Advice – Non-existent Drones
shopping websites are being utilised by fraudsters to advertise
non-existent drones of various specifications for competitive prices.
Drones are personal flying devices that often carry cameras and
can be navigated remotely by smartphones or hand-held controllers.
Fraudsters are capitalising on their recent popularity and advertising
non-existent drones at a lower value than their recommended retail
price to tempt buyers.
After victims agree to purchase the drone, the fraudsters request
payment to be paid via bank transfer saying that it will quicken
the delivery process. After transferring the money, the buyers never
receive the drone and the fraudster blocks the victim to prevent
• Avoid paying by bank transfer. Use an online payment option
such as PayPal, which helps to protect you.
• Check feedback online by searching the associated phone
numbers or email addresses of the seller.
• Consider whether this is too good to be true.
If you have been affected by this or any other
scam, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting
