Scam, Shams and Cons
Port Hope Police are warning the public to be aware of increased activity in scam phone calls. Many Port Hope residents report getting phone calls indicating that they are in trouble or warrants are out for their arrest unless they call a number and speak with someone. Phone calls about security breaches and or the illegal use of Social Insurance Numbers along with CRA refunds. Port Hope Police took 11 complaints over the last few days. There were also a few attempts on the grandparent or emergency scam over the last week. One person received a Facebook message on a rebate scam for $50,000.00 if they purchase online Walmart visa pre-paid cards. In all cases the messages were not responded to and no resident was out any money.Follow Port Hope Police on Twitter @PortHopePolice and on Face Book and Instagram
