Merseyside lost another officer on Monday. Pc David PHILLIPs mown down by a stolen vehicle as he tried to put out 'stop sticks' to immobilise the vehicle by taking out the cars tyres.
As Chief Constable Sir Jon MURPHY said 'an incredibly sad day for Merseyside police the second time in less than 12 months I have had to sit down before the media and tell you about one of our officers being murdered'

They tell the victim that in order to recover the money that they have lost, the legal prosecutors will need to represent them and that there will be an advance fee which they will need to pay immediately. They normally say that this fee will be £239, but the price can vary.
Once the victim has made their payment, normally over the phone, they are not longer able to make contact, even when they try and call back the number which they received the call...
