Beware of Fraud!

Although the Internet, email and online banking have made some aspects of our lives easier, it has also increased the ability for criminals to take advantage of us in new ways.  The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service continues to receive fraud reports from members of the public on a daily basis.  Fraudulent activity can take the appearance of lottery scams, family emergency or romance scams, a fake computer virus, secret shopper or cheque cashing scams…. the possibilities are limited only to the creativeness of the fraudster.  The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service is urging members of the community to not reveal personal or banking information over the telephone or Internet unless they are absolutely certain the transaction is legitimate.  Remember that you have the right to ask questions, request a call back number or reference information.  A legitimate business person should have nothing to hide.  Your best defense if you suspect a fraud is to ignore an email or hang up the telephone and make a report to police.  If it sounds too good to be true….it probably is!  Please also warn vulnerable friends and family members who may be more likely to be victimized by Internet or telephone schemes.
