Guelph Police are warning residents of a telephone and internet scam involving someone who says they are from the RCMP.
The caller says they are with a bank or credit card company working with the RCMP to conduct an investigation, claiming there have been suspicious transactions on the victims account. Police also say the caller is able to provide information on legitimate transactions made on the victim’s account, to gain their trust.
