Mystery Shopper Fraud

The Brockville Police Service has received reports of cheques being received in the mail for mystery shopping. Residents are to be reminded that if a deal appears to good to be true, then it probably is! In most cases the company will make contact and advise they made a mistake on the cheque and ask you to return a portion of the monies. When you send them money their cheque never clears and you are now a victim. Be vigilant!
