Police warn of fraudsters
This past week, police have received several reports of fraud. In one instance, a fraudster used a social media platform to take deposit for a rental property. In another incident, fraudsters targeted locals by using stolen credit card information or by setting up false e-transfers. Police have also received reports of someone posing as a family member and asking people for money over the phone.
Police remind people to not do any etransfers or other financial transactions with people they don’t know and to report any suspicious activity to police and banking institutions.
