Woodstock Police Briefs

Briefs include COSTCO fraud, possible fentanyl overdose and two roll overs during the long weekend.

WOODSTOCK - Woodstock Police were called on Friday night after getting a report from a citizen about an online fraud. 

Police say the victim thought they had made purchase from the COSTCO web site. It turns out it was a fraudulent website and the money they transferred was gone. Police say this is not a new scam and there are many fraudulent advertisements from places claiming to be COSTCO. 

They recommend you to never take online surveys about products and do not provide your personal information or forward funds for samples. 

If you have been a victim of this type of fraud contact the Police or report to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre 1-888-495-8501.
