Hampshire Alert - vehicle online shopping fraud

Fraudsters have been advertising vehicles and machinery for sale on various selling platforms online. The victims, after communicating via email with the fraudster, will receive a bogus email which purports to be from an established escrow provider (a third party who will keep the payment until the buying and selling parties are both happy with the deal).

These emails are designed to persuade victims to pay upfront, via bank transfer, before visiting the seller to collect the goods. The emails also claim that the buyer (victim) has a cooling off period to reclaim the payment if they change their mind. This gives victims the false sense of security that their money is being looked after by this trustworthy third party, when in fact it is not and the money has gone straight to the fraudster.

Protect yourself:
  • When making a large purchase such as a new car or machinery, always meet the seller face to face first and ask to see the goods before transferring any money.
  • If you receive a suspicious email asking for payment, check for spelling, grammar, or any other errors, and check who sent the email. If in doubt, check feedback online by searching the associated phone numbers or email addresses of the seller.
  • Contact the third party the fraudsters are purporting to be using to make the transaction. They should be able to confirm whether the email you have received is legitimate or not.
  • False adverts often offer vehicles or machinery for sale well below market value to entice potential victims; always be cautious. If it looks too good to be true then it probably is.
If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it to Action Fraud by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk, or by calling 0300 123 2040.

Transition to civilian life information sheet - managing personal finances

Transition to civilian life


The resettlement services delivered by the CTP focus very much on supporting Service leavers through the transition of leaving the Armed Forces whether that comes after just a few years’ Service or a full career spanning over 20 years. The majority of those leaving the Forces enter the civilian employment market, some take time out to study and some simply retire. Whatever your chosen pathway when you leave, there are other important factors to consider too such as looking for a home, locating schools for children, organising your finances, right down to registering with a doctor and a dentist.

Gov.UK - The law on leaving your child home alone

The law doesn’t say an age when you can leave a child on their own, but it’s an offence to leave a child alone if it places them at risk. Use your judgement on how mature your child is before you decide to leave them alone, eg at home or in a car.


  • children under 12 are rarely mature enough to be left alone for a long period of time
  • children under 16 shouldn’t be left alone overnight
  • babies, toddlers and very young children should never be left alone

Parents can be prosecuted if they leave a child unsupervised ‘in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health

Veterans' Reorg five day residential course - 19th to 23rd June 2017



The Royal British Legion Battle Back Centre Lilleshall was opened in 2011 to help Armed Forces personnel who are wounded, injured or sick (WIS) to achieve the best possible recovery and either return to duty or make a smooth transition to civilian life.
Over 5,000 personnel from all three services have attended courses at the Centre, which enjoys an enviable reputation with the serving community. The intention is to now open courses to service veterans. Undertaking and overcoming challenge is proven to enhance recovery. Participating in individual and team challenges builds confidence and self-esteem and also creates strong bonds of trust between participants that remain long after the activity has finished.
