New "Notice Of Prosecution" scam targets small businesses in UK

FOLLOWING on from the recent 'Greater Manchester Police Notice Of Prosecution' email we reported last week, a new scam is active. This is targeting small businesses and if you click on the notice it delivers malware.

This spoofing email is headed:- 'The UK Government Insolvency Service.' It is pretending to be a Company Investigations Inquiry Reminder and says:- "We have received an accusation about your company which indicates corporate exploitation." It goes on to say a "court to wind up the company and stop it trading." should you not respond.

If you get this email, do not click on it! Report to and report it to us via going to:- ReportLite.ActionFraud.Police.UK and also please forward the email on to:- NFIBPhishing@City-Of-London.PNN.Police.UK, as well as Phishing@CompaniesHouse.Gov.UK.

If you have clicked on this email, check your computer for viruses, on regular bases, as the malware might be time activated!

NHS staff go on manoeuvres with Army Reserves

Kath Higgins, head of nursing and Army Reserves major, with hospital colleagues.

HOSPITAL staff got a taste of military life on a team building and leadership day at Altcar Training Camp, Formby.

18 people took part with representation from the wards, radiology, A&E, dermatology, sterile services, the walk in centres, administration, theatres and gynaecology.

The day was a mixture of interactive classroom sessions on team building and conflict resolution. Presentations and command tasks were delivered by the commanding officer, majors, warrant officers and other personnel from 3 Medical Regiment.

It also included outdoor command tasks with the grand finale being indoor ranges where staff demonstrated their newly acquired skills handling SA80 rifles, the military services’ current issued weapon.

The training day was organised by Kath Higgins, Head of Nursing for Planned Care, who is also a major with 207 Field Hospital at Chorley based 3 Medical Regiment. Both are units within the Army Medical Services employing regular and reserve personnel.

She said:- "It was 1 of the wettest and windiest days of the year but this did nothing to quash people’s enthusiasm. We had brilliant feedback and this is sure to be the 1st of many such exercises."

Letter to Editor:- "Queen demonstrated her concern."

"I see that our Queen has once again demonstrated her concern for her subjects by cancelling a Xmas train trip for fear of infecting fellow travellers with her cold germs. If only more sniffling members of the general public could realise that 'coughs and sneezes spread diseases' and do likewise; especially at this time of year. God bless you, Ma'am!" John Eoin Douglas.
