Moose Jaw Police Service had recently received several complaints of online and phone scams. The most recent include:
Scammers contact potential victims to advise that they have won a prize through “Publisher’s Clearing House” or “Reader’s Digest”. In order to receive the winnings, the scammers request fees up front through Western Union or money transfers in order to cover taxes or legal fees associated to the prize. Scammers will make several requests for further fees, and the victim never receives the prize.
Scammers post online ads offering loans. Victims who respond to the ads are required to send advanced fees or payments in order to cover insurance or initial payments before receiving the loan. Scammers will make several requests for further fees, and the victim never receives the loan.
Moose Jaw Police Service would like to remind the public that unsolicited calls advising that you have won a lottery or prize are scams. Companies such as Publisher’s Clearing House or Reader’s Digest will never request money or fees upfront of receiving prizes. Any fees associated will never be paid through a money service business.
Financial businesses cannot request fees prior to obtaining loans. Never give out your personal information over the phone.
If you have been victim of or believe you have been victim of a scam, contact the Moose Jaw Police Service or go online to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre for more information. www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca
