(SOUTHERN BRUCE COUNTY, ON) - The South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is asking residents to continue watching out for cons and scams following a report from a resident in the Township of Huron-Kinloss. A phone call was received from "a member of the South Bruce OPP" to demand they transfer money immediately or they would be arrested for fraud. Unfortunately the scam was successful in that $3,800 was transferred.

Please note that the OPP will NEVER demand that you make a payment.

Tech-savvy scammers use technology to create very convincing schemes to trick you into sending them money. They will commonly use the name of a real company in order to gain your trust so that you will send money or personal information to them. Your best defence is to verify any unsolicited contact. Unsolicited means that you didn't ask for it.

Fraud is a multi-million dollar enterprise that will only end when they stop making money.

Anyone interested in more information on fraud can contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1 888 495 8501 or check online at http://www.antifraudcentre.ca/.



The South Bruce OPP is requesting anyone with information to call 1-888-310-1122. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit a secure web-tip at www.cstip.ca, where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2000.
