Christmas shoppers are
being urged not to rush
into buying gifts from unknown
sellers as new figures show victims
lost nearly £16 million
to fraudsters last year.
Police have launched a campaign
warning buyers that they could be
playing into the hands of scammers
in their attempts to snap
up seasonal bargains.
Jon Ironmonger reports.
Christmas is coming, which means,
for many, the pressure
is on to start shopping.
In the big rush to buy presents,
it's not unusual to spend
first and think second,
but police are warning of a sharp
increase in shopping fraud over
the Christmas period.
The Action Fraud unit of City
of London Police says more
than 15,000 victims across all age
groups came forward
to report crimes last year.
From identity theft and card cloning
to dodgy online apps,
costing shoppers a total
of nearly £16 million.
Compared to this time last year,
we've had a 25% increase of overall
fraud and we've also seen this year
65% increase of auction fraud,
online fraud and marketplace fraud.
Mobile phones continue to be
the most likely products to be
bought from fraudsters,
but clothing and footwear are high
on the list too, as well as make up,
drones and Fitbit watches.
The growing problem has prompted
a police video campaign,
showing the many scams targeting
Christmas shoppers and what people
can do to avoid them,
like making sure a good deal
is the real deal.
Now to the man who has sold 150
million records across the world.
He's Arnold Dorsey to his

but to us, Engelbert Humperdinck.
At the age of 81, he's still touring
and has a new album.
He's been talking to Wendy Hurrell
about how his music
is helping his wife,
who has Alzheimer's.

Humperdinck has produced a new album

the songs depict exactly what a man
thinks about his better half, you
know? I met her in a dance hall when
she was 17 years old, and we have
been dancing together ever since.

She listens to the album everyday!
Yes, she listens to it
every morning and there's a smile on
her face when she hears it. She's
not totally compos mentis but she's
beginning to understand more now and
I think musically it is great
therapy for her because it brings
back the past and it is wonderful,
and she's learning to talk a bit
more now again. It is just
wonderful, wonderful. The progress,

What a beautiful story.
Now let's get a check on the weather
with Elizabeth Rizzini.
Hello, good afternoon.
It was a mild but a wet
and windy start to the day.
we saw some squally bands of rain
sweep through early on this morning.
That has now introduced some cooler
but also some clearer air,
so lots of blue sky and sunshine,
and that should last for most of us
for the rest of the afternoon.
Just a bit of fair weather cloud
bubbling up here and there,
still a brisk westerly wind.
Temperatures which were on 13 or 14
Celsius will be lower by the time
we get to the end of the day,
between nine and 11 Celsius.
They will drop away quite quickly
as we head through this evening.
A clear rush hour to come but then
we see some cloud and outbreaks
of rain spread in from the south
as we head through the
course of the night.
That is going to clear eastwards
but possibly a bit of a cloudy,
damp start to the day.
Out to the north-west,
we may see temperatures
here to blow enough to get a touch
of frost if we keep those clear
skies for some time.
Tomorrow, a cold-feeling
day but once the cloud,
the early dampness, has cleared
away, the sun will come out and it
will be pretty pleasant with much
lighter winds than today, falling
quite light, temperatures
only between eight and
ten, so it will feel
quite cool but there
will be lots of sunshine
around to compensate.
On Friday night, many of us
could see a frost as we head
into Saturday but we do have this
rain brushing the south coast.
That may well come
a bit further north,
so it all depends on that.
But a frosty start for some of us
on Saturday morning.
The winds will be fairly
light over the course of
Saturday but they will strengthen
and it is still feeling cold but
there will be lots
of sunshine around.
That's about it from me,
Riz Lateef will be here
with our 6:30 evening programme.
But for now, from us all,
a very good afternoon.
