LEEDS COUNTY OPP INFORM PUBLIC OF POSSIBLE SCAM
(ELGIN, ON) – On August 15th, 2016 Leeds County Ontario Provincial Police (O.P.P) responded to a call of a potential fraud that occurred over the phone.
An Elgin area woman received a phone call from a male claiming to be “Sheriff Shawn Miller of the Toronto Police” and told the woman she was being charged with fraud and the male provided a toll free call back number that is known to be fraudulent.
Fraudsters are either phishing for your identification or asking that outstanding taxes be paid by a money service business or by pre-paid debit/credit cards and advise the victim that they will be arrested should they fail to pay immediately. They may insist that the receiver of the call provide personal information so that they can receive a refund or a benefit payment. Cases of fraudulent communication could also involve threatening or coercive language to scare individuals into paying fictitious debt to the CRA. Other communications urge taxpayers to visit a fake CRA website where the taxpayer is then asked to verify their identity by entering personal information. These are scams and citizens should never respond to these fraudulent communications nor click on any of the links provided. Calls such as these are even being received on personal and work related telecommunications devices.
Here are some warning signs:
- Urgency– The scammer always makes the request sound very urgent, which may cause the victim to not verify the story.
- Fear– The scammer plays on the victim’s emotions by generating a sense of fear.
- Request for Money Transfer– Money is usually requested to be sent by a money transfer company such as Money Gram, Western Union or even through your own financial institution.
To avoid becoming a victim, police advise you to first check with another family member or trusted friend to verify the information BEFORE sending money or providing credit card information by phone or e-mail.
