Apparent mail fraud is latest scam; packages resemble court documents

Police are warning about a new scam. A package arrives in the mail and the contents resemble court documents, originating from the police. But the documents are fake and whole thing is a scam.

Stormont Dundas and Glengarry Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Cornwall Police Service (CPS) are investigating apparent mail fraud.

Both police agencies have received several complaints from the public regarding the delivery of unexpected packages containing, what appears to be, court documents. The packages indicate the contents have originated from various police agencies. The CPS and SD&G OPP can confirm these documents did not originate within their services. The investigation by the SD&G OPP Crime Unit is in its early stages.

The SD&G OPP is requesting that if you or your business receives similar documents to please contact the SD&G OPP (1-888-310-1122).
