Bradford Man Fleeced Out Of $1,600 Through Online Scam

Hasn't Heard From Online Money Lenders Since Putting Down "Deposit."

We told you about a similar crime recently, but here’s another one. South Simcoe Police say a guy is out some scratch after trying to get an online loan. The dude applied online for a high value loan, and was contacted the next day by someone saying he’d been approved but needed to put down $1,600 in cash, up front, to insure the loan. He hasn’t heard back from these supposed money lenders since handing over the cash. Check out the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website for tips on how to avoid being bamboozled by this, or similar online scams.
