Williams Lake RCMP wants the public to be aware of a recent online fraud that has surfaced in the community.
In a release, Police said they’ve learned that someone, claiming to be a Police Officer, has asked for gift cards, specifically Amazon gift cards for a variety of reasons.
They added that the scammer has been successful a few times in getting unsuspecting individuals to send gift cards.
“Under no circumstances would the RCMP ever ask for gift cards of any kind, regardless of the reason,” Staff Sargeant Del Byron, Operations NCO Williams Lake RCMP said.
