LOCK IT OR LOSE IT

(HAWKESBURY, ON) – The Hawkesbury OPP is encouraging residents to follow tips from the Lock it or Lose it initiative to help prevent thefts of motor vehicles and thefts from motor vehicles:

-Always roll up your vehicle’s windows, lock the doors and pocket the key

-Never leave your vehicle unattended while its running

-If you have a garage, use it.  Lock the vehicle and the garage doors

-Never leave your vehicle keys in plain view or easily accessible

-Always park in a busy, well-lit area

-Never leave valuable objects or packages in plain view

With the Christmas shopping, thieves are walking the streets and parking lots looking for opportunities.  Over the years, officers have noticed that thieves will try out car doors and will eventually pass to the next car if the doors are locked.  They are looking for a quick easy grab. Minimise the opportunities and you will reduce the risk of becoming a victim.

The Hawkesbury Auxiliary OPP officers recently carried out a Crime Prevention Initiative, inspecting vehicles in parking lots and visiting several businesses, handing out information leaflets to business owners and customers on how to protect your home and vehicle.

Locking up should be applied to your home and property. You work hard to earn your money, so work hard to protect your purchases…Safeguard Ontario and Lock it or Lose it.

(HAWKESBURY, ON) – Hawkesbury Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) assisted with some fraud calls during the past weeks. OPP is asking members of the public to be aware of the following fraudulent activities related to individuals claiming they are calling from Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) or from Microsoft.

The fraudsters represent themselves as an agent of the CRA attempting to get residents to send them money and gain valuable personal information in the process.

Scammers are also calling or sending emails claiming they work for Microsoft, advising victims that their computer contains a virus. If you fall for it and remote access to your computer is granted, scammers can then access any personal information stored on your computer.

These criminals are looking for your personal information in hopes of defrauding you.
