Message from Lincolnshire Police Headquarters, Engagement Team

Scam Phone Calls

Many U3A members are reporting a bombardment of scam telephone calls where the caller threatens to cut off your BT account and advises you to press 1 on your keypad. DO NOT DO THIS _ JUST PUT THE PHONE DOWN.

 Please report any misleading website, email or phone number to Action Fraud www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or contact Lincolnshire Police on Tel 101

 

Please note this is just one example of a scam there are many others so please be vigilant and careful about to whom you are giving personal details

Mileage rates. Please be aware that the Committee have agreed that the rates for the use of private motor vehicles has increased from the 1st October 2010 from 20p to 30 pence per mile. In calculating this rate please multiply the mileage for your return journey by 30 pence and divide by the number of  occupants in the vehicle, including the driver.

For example: A return journey of 20 miles in a car with 4 occupants =           20 multiplied by 30 is £6 divided by 4 is £1.50 per person for the journey.
