On Friday, October 27, 2017, South Simcoe Police received information about an internet fraud that had taken place. The suspect convinced the victim to send a large quantity of money to help out a family member serving overseas. All documents sent and viewed by the victim through the internet looked authentic giving no reason to think it was a fraudulent transaction. Unfortunately, the victim is now out several hundred thousand dollars. The investigation is continuing. Internet fraud has reached epidemic proportions. Policing the internet is a difficult task. In order to avoid becoming a victim, you must use common sense and caution. Fraud artists are experts on preying on their victim’s fears, insecurities, naivete and greed. If you come across a deal that sounds too good to be true, it might be a fraud. If you receive an email saying you owe money, it might be a fraud. If you get a message on your computer that you will be arrested or fined for your activities, it is a fraud. Government agencies, police, courts, Canada Revenue, and banks will never demand payment over the phone or by email. We never threaten arrest for nonpayment. If you suspect a scam, look up the agency phone number and call them for confirmation. Educate yourself and vulnerable members of your family by going to the Canadian Anti-Fraud website for more information. http://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/index-eng.htm
