COCKERMOUTH COUNTRY MARKET NEWS


Your local Country Market is part of a national organisation, which is celebrating 100 years of Markets, this year!


We are delighted to be part of this organisation and are planning a few special things to mark the centenary.


We are selling some sturdy jute bags which make wonderful long-lasting shopping bags, telling the world that you shopped at the Country Market.


Visit us on Friday mornings to buy our lovely home-produced bakes, preserves, crafts and plants. Buy locally produced items… you know it makes sense! You can carry them home in one of our commemorative bags. Rachel McConkey


BEWARE OF THE UNSCRUPULOUS ON DATING WEBSITES ~ CITIZENS ADVICE ALLERDALE ~


“I recently joined a dating website. I was contacted by a lovely man and we started to exchange messages. We now email every day, although we haven’t met in person yet. We had arranged to go for a meal but then he cancelled because he needs to concentrate on fundraising for his daughter - the medicines she needs aren’t available on the NHS.


“He’s asked me to contribute, his daughter needs treatment urgently. He’s given me details of a bank account to pay into. I want to help but I’m unsure because I’ve only known him a short time.”


SHOP LOCAL, YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE! We’re open from 9.00am-12.30pm every Friday

You’re right to be cautious. Unfortunately dating sites are increasingly being targeted by unscrupulous people. It can be difficult to accept that someone you’ve developed feelings for is trying to swindle you. Scammers can be highly skilled at using emotional triggers to persuade people to part with money, or with personal information that might make victims vulnerable to identity theft.


Your friend may be completely genuine but try to find out if he’s really who he


says he is. A reluctance to call you or Skype, or profile information such as educational achievements not matching the content of his messages, could be a red flag that this is a scam.


Other things to look out for include expressing strong emotions in a short period of time, moving the conversation away from the dating site and onto a private channel such as email or instant messaging and asking lots of personal questions - but giving away very little in return.


Trust your instincts and if in any doubt, don’t part with your money.
