Woodstock Police Warning the Public About a Phone Scam

Woodstock Police are reminding residents to be cautious after residents received a phone call from someone pretending to be a police officer. 

WOODSTOCK - Woodstock Police are reminding residents to be cautious after getting a phone scam from someone pretending to be a police officer. 

This week WPS received a report of an unknown male posing as a RCMP officer via phone claiming there were multiple warrants for the individual’s arrests as a result of involvement in money laundering. The scammer stated all charges would be dropped if the individual paid $1800 in Bitcoin and provide their Social Insurance Number.

Police will never ask that you make a Bitcoin payment to drop charges against you. Be cautious of providing any personal information, including your SIN, over the phone.

If you receive a call you believe to be a scam, hang up and report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. www.antifraudcentre.ca.
