Secret Shopper Fraud
On September 6th at 6:10 pm, Brockville Police received another on-line fraud complaint in regards to the secret shopper scam.
A local 19 year old male cashed a cheque he received in the mail for several thousand dollars. The cheque was returned as fraudulent.
Once again, the Brockville Police advise people not to get involved in these on-line shopping offers. The person who cashes the fraudulent cheque ends up on the hook for monies spent before being advised the cheque is of no value. This complaint also shows there is no particular age group being targeted. Any member of our Community can be victimized and we stress that people not engage in these offers.
