Police are warning of an increase in the number of fake bank notes used in Conwy and Denbighshire.

This week has seen an increase in the number of fake bank notes used across the area.
The good news is that many have been identified by shop staff, but we ask people to remain vigilant especially with Scottish and Irish bank notes.

Rogue traders have targeted vulnerable people in the Conwy Valley area.

A number of incidents have been reported to North Wales Police in the past week where a man and a woman have visited properties offering tree cutting services.
The two people, who are believed to be travelling in a white Land Rover Defender, are offering to undertake the work for an excessive amount of money.

Sgt Lisa Armstrong said: “We are asking people to be vigilant and are strongly advising residents, particularly the elderly, not to accept any requests from cold callers to complete any form of work at their home addresses.

Police are urging residents to be vigilant and follow three steps to ensure doorstep crime is reduced.
The three step message to the public is: If in doubt, keep them out; be prepared, be in control; and call a neighbour or the police.

North Wales Police has issued a stark warning to anyone travelling abroad this year.

The force has urged tourists to think carefully before posting details of any trips away they have planned over the coming months.
And if that wasn't enough, they revealed one fact that could come as a shock to residents - posting about your summer holiday on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter could invalidate your home insurance.

The idea is that sharing status updates and photos on your social media accounts could inadvertently let burglars know that your property was vacant - and ripe for the picking from thieves.
It comes after industry experts expressed similar concerns, supported by recent statistics on burglaries in the UK.

Research shows that a large proportion of home raids take place when the homeowner isn't there, so it's particularly important to make your property safe while you're away for long periods of time.

Yesterday's warning by the North Flintshire Local Policing Team however targets one particular way that the public are putting their properties, and home insurance, at risk.
In a tweet, they shared a photo of a holiday countdown, which often appear on social media timelines as users share how long is left until their next holiday.

Did you know some companies invalidate Home Insurance Policies if you make a social media post like this and then get burgled whilst away!  Maybe save checking in at airports or uploading holiday snaps until you get home.
The force account also advised against checking in at airport and recommended uploading holiday photos once you're back home.

The topic has long been the subject of much discussion, including by other experts such as Alex Iszatt.
The Crime Specialist collaborated with insurer Admiral to reduce the risks faced by homeowners in the UK.
He revealed that 36% of social media users have mentioned future holidays on their accounts, a fact which is particularly worrying considering almost 50% of burglaries take place when the homeowner is away.  ref DP
