Barrie Police continue to warn folks to be wary, after a local man claims he was taken for a ride by a lending company. He told police he was approved for a high value loan by a Winnipeg-based lending company late last month, but first he had to put down a $900 deposit. Once he did, that’s when the guy says the company turned around and said they needed another $900. The man claims he asked for his initial deposit back, to no avail, and hasn’t been able to contact anyone at this company since. That’s when he contacted police instead, who are investigating.
