Identity Theft

Keep Your ID In A Safe Place

A warning from police about identity theft. Grey County OPP say a resident of Georgian Bluffs found out recently he had a credit card account opened in his name without his consent. The 69 year old only became aware of the account after being contacted by a collection agency, regarding purchases made in Toronto.  Police say the best way to protect your personal information is to keep your social insurance number in a safe place, and don’t give out personal information UNLESS you have initiated the contact.
