St Thomas Police are warning citizens to beware of a new identity theft scam that was reported by a St Thomas citizen this past weekend. Police say the suspected scammer was situated in a vehicle just outside a retail store using a laptop computer to gain access via wireless radio frequency to debit transactions occurring at checkout counters within the store. The scammer then forwarded this personal information to a second person in the Montreal area. Police are reminding citizens to be extra cautious when using debit or credit cards. Remember! check monthly billing statements for accuracy and or inconsistencies.
Report all suspicious activities to Police.
