Scam Alert

June 5, 2017

Grande Prairie District Rural Crime Watch has been alerted of a phone scam this morning. It involves a caller identifying himself as representing the Stars Lottery and saying you have won a prize. You are then given directions to send $375.00 to an individual in Edmonton by courier to be able to collect your winnings. These people are good as they convinced people to do this that have never bought a ticket. The R.C.M.P. was notified and it is a scam. If you get a phone call of this nature please notify the R.C.M.P. Thank you to our GPDRCWA member that reported this as we are better able to help prevent crime in our community with your continued sharing of suspected criminal activity.
