WARNING OVER SCAM INVOLVING ELDERLY VETERANS

The Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA) is warning of a scam aimed at gaining access to people’s bank account savings and which appears to be targeted at the elderly, including Armed Forces veterans.
The scam involves the victims receiving a telephone call from someone stating they are from their bank. The person will say that they need to get a new bank card and that it will be delivered by courier. A person posing as a courier then attends the address and takes the victims bank card in exchange for a ‘new’ one. The new bank card is a fake and the offenders will then go on to use the bank card from the victim to make numerous fraudulent transactions. It is thought that they obtain the pin number through the telephone conversation.
At least two of the four known victims of this scam have been Armed Forces veterans.
SPVA’s Head of Veterans Services, Jon Parkin, said: "Whilst there is nothing to suggest that the Veterans Community is specifically being targeted, it is important for veterans to be aware of this scam and to remain vigilant. If people are approached in this way, they should refuse to become involved and should report the matter to their local police station."
The warning was issued after the Police contacted the Agency and requested help in making veterans groups aware.

The RSA would advise that members should never give out pin numbers, expired cards or personal details to anyone, no matter how plausible they sound. If you do have an expired card, cut it up. If you find this too difficult to do, ask a family member or friend to do it for you.

Book Review - Safety Was no Accident by James Fuller - A History of the Civil Aviation Flying Unit CAFU

From his viewpoint from the CAFU operations centre Jim Fuller was well placed to write this history of CAFU. This does not detract from the amount of sheer hard work needed to find and re-assemble all the available information and collate it into a readable and accurate account some 16 years after the final demise of CAFU, 21 years after the move to Teesside of flight calibration and 26 years after the start of the break-up of the various functions of the unit when Flight Crew Licensing moved to the SRG at Gatwick.

When Jim started to assemble the information required for this work he was not sure that the effort would result in a worthwhile end product and was careful not to raise hopes by committing himself to the word 'book'. But, over a period of some years, Jim assembled the available documents, information and photographs. Much of this information was undated or came from memories that were dimming with time.

The end product though is easy to read, it is a must for the bookshelf or bedside table of all those who were involved with CAFU and a reference source for those that are interested in the history of civil aviation since WW2.

Personal Details held by the RSA.

It has come to our notice that one of our members is alleging that the RSA could have been one of three organisations leaking/selling personal details to a third party. On behalf of the CAA Retired Staff Association, I wish to make it clear we abide by the Data Protection Act and take every step to protect the personal information of our members. There is not the remotest question of information being either leaked or sold.

DO YOU KNOW BETTER?

John Campbell informs Anne that a Mr Geoff Large who retired from A Watch ATC Heathrow in 1981 is 100 years old today (15 March 2021). The question is "is he the only Centenarian in the history of CAA/NATS?"
