June 11 – Police received a complaint of a scam involving an elderly couple who received a phone call from a male claiming to be with Publishers Clearing House. The male advised the couple that they won a vehicle but were required to pay an $850 delivery charge via Western Union, which they paid. Police confirmed the couple did not provide any banking or credit card information to the fraudster, and later learned that the couple was able to reverse the Western Union money transfer. The couple stated shortly after the scam they also received a scam phone call from an individual claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency, but they did not provide any information.

A resident of 4th Street South reported that approximately $10,000 worth of tools was stolen from his shed sometime over the weekend.

June 12 – A report was received of two suspicious individuals inside a bus located on a church’s parking lot.

The youths stated it would not happen again and departed the scene.

June 13 – An employee of a local church reported that her computer had been hacked and she learned that the church’s banking information had been accessed. Two e-transfers in the amount of $1970 each had been sent, however one of the e-transfers was still pending and the complainant immediately cancelled the transfer. The complainant had already advised the church’s banking institution of the fraud.

June 14 – A report was received of a suspicious female who appeared to be sleeping inside her vehicle while parked at a local convenience store. Police attended and spoke with the female who advised police that she was spending the night in Winkler but could not afford a hotel so she slept in her vehicle.

An elderly female received a phone call from an individual claiming to be from the “Do not call list” and was asked to provide her debit card number, which she did. Afterward the female realized she should not have provided the number, and was subsequently advised to contact her banking institution regarding the compromised debit card.

Police were advised of an internal fraud that took place over the last two years at a local home improvement store. The fraud involved a male employee refunding items that he had not purchased to his own personal accounts. The total amount refunded over the two year period was approximately $110,000.
