Beware of phone scams, warn Comox Valley RCMP
Phone scams continue to be a constant drain on police resources and on the public's pocketbooks, according to the Comox Valley RCMP.
There are still complaints being received week after week of people being duped out of thousands of dollars after receiving phone
calls for urgently needed money by relatives, the RCMP said Thursday in a news release.
Police are again asking Comox Valley residents to please check with relatives before sending any funds to people saying that they are relatives or family in need. Do some investigating
before acting, even if the person on the phone asks you not to call their parents, siblings, etc.
