Grandparent Scams on the rise

Image

Ottawa Police have seen an uptick in recent Grandparent scams. Please remind your loved ones that the police will never call them asking for bail money to get a family member out of jail. If someone does call and says they are representing a police service like the RCMP or the Ottawa Police, remind your loved one that if they can’t reach you directly, they should look up the police service's phone number and call the police service directly to verify any information. If you can’t find the number, call 2-1-1. Staff at 211 Ontario can help. Ask them to connect you with the actual police service. More information is available at this link.
