Boyle RCMP Warning Residents of Utility Scam

Boyle, Alberta – Boyle RCMP would like to warn residents of a scam currently making rounds in the Boyle area. The scam involves an unsolicited call from a person identifying themselves as purporting to represent a utility company and advising that an account is in arrears. The individual(s) then demand the account be paid with prepaid credit cards or they threaten to disconnect the utility.

Boyle RCMP are presently investigating a reported scam taking place in the Boyle area. On June 11th, a resident of Boyle received an unsolicited call from an individual purporting themselves to represent a utility company. The individual advised the resident that their utility account was in arrears and demanded payment on the account. The resident was advised to pay the account with prepaid credit cards or else their utility would be disconnected.

In this case the resident realized it was a scam and reported it to Police before money was exchanged; however, typically these individuals can be very convincing and not all scams are realized until after the fact. Scammers typically target businesses and senior citizens. Citizens should recognize that this is not how businesses conduct themselves, and to be wary of unsolicited and out of the ordinary calls, especially when bank account information, money transfers, or prepaid cards are involved.

Boyle RCMP are continuing to investigate. If you suspect you have been targeted by fraud by e-mail or telephone it should be reported to the company named and to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center at 1-888-495-8501. Attempted and completed frauds should be reported to Boyle RCMP at (780) 689-4081.  More information can be found on www.antifraudcentre.ca.
