Dear members of the London European Club,

I'd like to bring to your attention the issue of on-line safety when using social networking.

a. The government has produced guidance on this in its GET SAFE ON LINE website: https://www.getsafeon...­ . The Metropolitan police’s Police Central e-Crime Unit has also produced advice: http://www.met.police...­

b. Meetup members would be well advised to follow the advice at the above links.

2. I am also conscious that not all of our Meetup members are long-term residents of the UK, and may thus not know what do if they are suspicious or feel threatened.

a. If you are suspicious about something on a social networking site (e.g. if you suspect that someone or an organisation may be asking you improperly either for money or to enter into a contract, or to otherwise trick you) then you should contact the TRADING STANDARDS office for the local authority area in which one is resident: e.g. for Westminster residents http://www.westminste...­

b. If you feel threatened or suspect someone is doing or attempting to do something criminal, then you should contact the police either by visiting a POLICE STATION or by phoning 101. In cases of emergency only, the police can be contacted by phoning 999. The following website gives details of the difference between the police 101 and the emergency 999 numbers: http://www.police.uk/...­ . Remember, it is better to inform the police if you are suspicious, rather than to stay quiet and regret it later.

If you have a complaint against another member please send it to one of the Organisers, we take complaints very seriously. At the same time you have to take responcibility for your own safety and look after each other at events.

Enjoy meeting up and don't let a few bad apples spoil the fun.
