There’s the Lawsuit Scam, in which a caller tells the potential victim they are being sued and are required to call a long distance number to deal with the matter. The victim is subsequently tricked into providing sensitive information.
Police also warn of the Bank Investigator Scam. With thios, a call claims to be a bank investigator, working with the RCMP investigating a large internal bank fraud. The caller explains that part of this investigation requires the victim to send funds via Western Union to an address and that their money would be returned. In this scam, the caller also may trick the victim into providing remote access to their computer.
