On Saturday, June 24, 2023, at 1:06 p.m. a frontline Trail and Greater District RCMP officer received a report from a year-old Montrose woman who was the victim of a fraud from a fake company listed on a social media website. The woman had electronically transferred $5000 to an unknown person at the company who had promised to send her $82,000 in return. When she did not receive the money, she contacted the Trail Detachment.

The woman was provided with information on how to prevent further victimization.

Police cannot recover money sent electronically or through gift cards over social media. Please keep it in mind that once you send the money it is gone for good. No one is going to send you more money in return. Every year thousands of people fall victim to this simple scam. says Sgt. Wicentowich
