SEPT 9 - OPP WARN OF EMERGENCY SCAM SURFACING IN AREA AGAIN

FROM/DE:  Upper Ottawa Valley OPP                DATE: September 9, 2019

 
 
(PEMBROKE, ON) – The Upper Ottawa Valley Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to warn the public that the emergency scam has surfaced in the area again.  In recent weeks police have received fraud complaints after two local residents lost significant amounts of money to this type of scam. 
 
In these cases the victim typically receives a frantic phone call or an emergency email from someone claiming to be a grandchild, son/daughter, friend or loved one.  The scammer will explain they are involved in some sort of emergency which often involves legal trouble, a motor vehicle collision, a serious injury or trouble returning from a foreign country and that they need money right away. 
 
With the emergency scam the scammer attempts to create a sense of urgency which may cause the victim to not verify the story.  The scammer will often insist that the victim not tell anyone and to transfer the money that has been requested through a money transfer company.  Also, many scammers want to trick you into providing your banking and personal information.  In fact, the criminals will fraudulently use your personal information to steal your money.
 
If a scam artist contacts you or if you have been defrauded contact your local police service and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC).   You can file a report with the CAFC by calling 1-888-495-8501 (Monday to Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm EST) or by using their online reporting tool at www.antifraudcentre.ca
