Bedfordshire Police are urging residents and businesses to be be aware of, and not fall victim, to Cybercrime

“We have called our campaign [Ctrl] +[Rpt] +[Del] because we want people to take control of the information and images they put online to protect themselves from scams, phishing and harassment; report any cybercrime they are aware of and delete the opportunities for criminals to use the internet for crime.”

“For example if you are shopping online this Christmas always use either your credit card, which offers you protection in case of fraud, or a recognised online payment service such as PayPal. Avoid paying by money transfers or direct banking transactions which can be unsecure. Never send confidential personal or financial information by email.”

Lots more information here, read it now, not after you have been scammed
