New fraud scam targeting local businesses and hotels


The Ottawa Police Service Fraud Unit is warning of a new fraud scheme targeting businesses and hotels in the Ottawa area. The incidents reported all follow the same pattern: a fraudster, usually male, will call the business claiming to be the owner or manager stating that there is an urgent need to pay a bill related to the business. They then direct the employee to gather funds from the register, safe or office and deposit it into a bitcoin machine or to Western Union. Visit for more information.
