Long Sault - Aug. 23, 2011 - The Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry (SDG) Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police would like to remind people to be very careful of anyone requesting they wire money to assist an injured relative or one who has been arrested and requiring bail money to be wired.

There are also several other scams where people are told they have won money but need to send some money first to secure their prize, Others want you to hold onto millions of dollars as their country is under siege etc… Over payment scams for internet purchases, the list is limitless.

SDG OPP have received a complaint of a scam where a suspect contacted an unsuspecting person and identifying himself as a relative or grandchild who is sick and is in dire need of cash to be wired through Western Union for medical expenses. Do not wire anyone any money if you are not sure who they really are.

Please obtain as much caller information such as phone numbers, addresses etc. and contact police if you are unsure or contact another family member to verify if indeed the call is genuine.
