Fraud / Scam
On June 13th at 2:34 pm, Brockville Police received a fraud complaint from a local 87 year old man.
He fell victim to one of the more popular scams, told he had won a lottery but registration fees had to be paid in order to collect. The man sent a large sum of money and gave out a lot of personal information while trying to claim the false winnings. These frauds are hard to solve due to their global nature.
Again, we advise, buyer beware. If it’s too good to be true, don’t get involved in any way.
On June 13th at 8:35 pm, Brockville Police attended a south end residence for a mischief complaint.
A local 35 year old man showed up at the home and was accusing the residents of stealing his cell phone. While leaving, the man broke a window at the residence.
The accused, known to Police, is now wanted for mischief.
