Action Fraud has noticed a rise in reports concerning the purchase of pets, in particular puppies, advertised for sale via popular online auction websites.
The fraudsters will place an advert of the pet for sale, claiming to have recently moved abroad and the need to re-home the puppies.
Once a sale is agreed and payment is made, usually by money transfer or bank transfer, the pet does not materialise. The fraudster will usually ask for further advanced payments for courier charges, shipping fees or vet bills.
• Stay within the auction guidelines. Be wary of paying fees via a Money Service Bureau, such as MoneyGram and Western Union.
• Consider conducting research on other information provided by the seller; for example a mobile phone number or email address used by the seller could alert you to any negative information associated with this number online.
• Request details of the courier company being used and conduct enquiries regarding the company
• Agree a suitable time to meet face to face to agree the purchase.
• Be wary. If you think the purchase price is too good to be true then this is probably an indication that it is!
If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online at http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone on 0300 123 2040.

Chelmsford City Council has now published the maps for the sites being considered for development in the period up to 2036.
The explanation for the SLAA (Strategic Land Availabilty Assessment) can be found here:
The full list of sites and maps can be found here:
(please note the list of Broomfield sites is found in the 'sites outside the green belt' option)
The map of Broomfield sites can be found here:
I have been told by Chelmsford's planning dept that there is no significance in the different colouring of sites (red, green, blue), and that the colouring was just to more easily differentiate between the sites.
It is important to stress that these sites are under consideration of suitability for development only; as it says on the CCC site "Please note that the submission of a site does not mean that the site will be allocated for development in the Local Plan."
The report containing the full assessment of all sites should be published and considered at the next Development Policy Committee meeting (September 2nd).
