OPP warn of cheque scam


Members of the Rainy River District OPP would like to notify the public of a scam that has been reported in the Fort Frances area.

Unknown parties fraudulently have acquired and distributed cheques belonging to a business in Calgary.

The culprit(s) have sent the cheques to seemingly random individuals, with one being sent to a residence in Fort Frances.

The OPP is assisting the Calgary Police Service, which is conducting a multi-jurisdictional investigation into the matter.

If you receive a cheque in the mail originating from a business in Calgary that you weren't expecting, do not deposit it.

Instead, contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or contact the Rainy River District OPP at 1-807-274-3322 during business hours.

Thank you for doing your part to help the OPP combat fraud in Rainy River District.
