The Ontario Provincial Police are warning people that fraudsters have been attempting to sell fake jewellery at gas stations in exchange for gas money.
The OPP says you should never make a deal outside a place of business, to trust your instincts (if it’s too good to be true then it probably is), and never provide any personal information.
You can refer to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website at www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca or call at 1-800-310-1122 for information about the numerous types of scams and how to protect yourself and others. According to the OPP: “You should not be embarrassed, you’re not alone”.
ANYONE HAVING INFORMATION ON THE ABOVE OR ANY CRIME IS ASKED TO CALL SD&G OPP AT 1-888-310-1122 OR CRIME STOPPERS AT 1-800-222-8477
