RCMP Report: Scammer claims to be from CRA

Missing phones and fraudulent phone calls were on the docket for the RCMP last week.

Missing phones


On March 31, two cellular phones were reported missing from a local business lunch room table.  The phones are described as one black Samsung phone and one black iPhone.

Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 250-344-2221.


Diesel thief


There was a reported theft of diesel fuel from a vehicle parked at the Wait-A-Bit gravel pit on April 3.


Fraudulent calls


A resident in Golden reported receiving telephone calls from a person alleging to be from Revenue Canada.  This person alleged the resident owed money to the government and attempted to have the resident wire money.

A second call was received where the caller stated it was the RCMP calling and that the person needed to wire the said funds.

Similar type fraud calls have been reported across the country.   The resident rightfully questioned the incident and did not wire the funds.

Don’t be afraid to question when someone is calling you for money.  If it doesn’t feel right, it probably is not.
