Scams Active in the Brockville area

A couple of familiar scams are again active in the Brockville area. Early yesterday afternoon Brockville Police received a call from an area resident reporting a fraudulent rental ad was placed on an online site. When the caller noticed the residence on the website for rent she attended to the address to only to learn the house had already been sold and a new family was moving in. Fortunately, the caller did not place any money down as a deposit and was not out any money.

Earlier in the week, police received several phone calls from residents in the Reynolds Drive area of door to door sales persons identifying themselves as employees of a telecommunications company. According to some callers, the sales person asked to come inside the residence to look at their telecommunications equipment. Area residents are reminded not to let sales persons into their residents, door to door sales persons in Brockville are required to notify the City of Brockville of their presence, and most legitimate sales persons will carry identification with them from the company.
