Scam

Belleville, ON. – The Belleville Police Service would like to make the public aware of a scam that is circulating throughout the City.  Victim’s receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Canadian Border Security who threaten the victim with arrest or possible deportation if they do not follow their instructions.  The victims are instructed to attend at a location in the City that has a “bitcoin” ATM style machine.  They are instructed to deposit a large sum of money which is then converted to bitcoin and forwarded to the scammer’s account.   Police would like to remind the public that the scammer’s will sometimes request payment through gift cards or wire money transfers.  Hang up immediately on anyone you feel may be involved in a scam and report it to your nearest police department.
