March 1st, 2018 - Police & the Community

March is Fraud Prevention Month. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) and the Barrie Police Service encourages you to know more about the different scams fraudsters use to steal money and/or identities. 

Numerous scams are occurring everyday throughout the country. Arm yourself with the correct information and how to properly report it. For information visit the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and the Barrie Police websites. The more you know about a specific scam, the less likely you are to be a victim.

If you or a family member are the victim of fraud please report it to police and/or the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501
