File # 2023-1658

The Dawson Creek RCMP have had several reports of cheque fraud in recent weeks and all appear to be related to each other.

Suspects will approach people who are selling their vehicles through private sales listed online, and purchase the vehicle using a cheque. The cheques being used were stolen from a local business with a Dawson Creek address. All stolen cheques used have bounced, leaving the victim without their vehicle and payment.

Several stolen cheques and stubs have been recovered throughout multiple police investigations, however stolen cheques are still outstanding. Only accept cheques from those you know and trust.

If you have any information on this you are asked to call the Dawson Creek RCMP at (250)-784-3700.
