Mounties in Bonnyville are warning about a phone scam making its way around the community. The RCMP says they’ve already heard complaints from people who receive a call from someone claiming to be a police officer. The caller then asks for things like bank account information and social insurance numbers.
Bonnyville police are reminding people that they never ask for that information over the phone. Scams like this one can be reported to the RCMP Anti-Fraud division at 1-800-495-8501.
