SCAM NEWS: Canadian Police Issue Warning After $240,000 Lost In Scams

Canadian Police are reminding people to be vigilant after two Norfolk residents were bilked of $240,000 in two separate scams.

Norfolk OPP were contacted on Jan. 15 by an employee at a local bank to report a fraud.

It was determined that a female bank client had been defrauded of about $200,000 after establishing an online relationship through a dating website.

Police say the suspect asked to borrow money from the victim to help with several emergencies. Between July 2018 and this month, the victim forwarded about $200,000.

How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance [use caution, not advisable in all countries]
  2. Your National Police or FBI «www.IC3.gov» OR from within the U.S. «tips.FBI.gov»
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network «HERE» or on «www.Anyscam.com» [available anywhere]

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
