Frauds – 10
Residents within Lanark County continue to get calls from fraudsters claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency, police or government requesting them to confirm their Social Insurance Number (SIN). In some cases, the caller will say a number (made up) and the unsuspecting victim provides their correct number or simply the last 3 digits. Never provide or confirm any personal information over the telephone unless you have initiated the call.

Residents are also receiving what is known as the “grandparent scam” phone calls apparently from their child/grandchild who’s been involved in a collision and can’t speak properly, advising the parent must send money in order for them to be released from jail or, for lawyers to “work out” backdoor court deals. Never send or transfer money in these cases as a lawyer would never pay any fine on your loved one’s behalf; payment would be made directly to the court if at all required. 

Liquor Licence Act Charges – 2

Mental Health – 2

Any person with information regarding any criminal activity should immediately contact the Ontario Provincial Police at 1-888-310-1122. Should you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Lanark County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.00.
