On June 15th, the Kitimat RCMP detachment received a complaint from a woman about a potential scam.
She said a stranger called her and told her that he was with Reader’s Digest, and that he had a cheque for her.
He told her he would drop it off at her residence the next day, even though he didn’t know her name.
The Mounties assisted the woman, and the man never showed up.
Sgt. Graham Morgan of the Kitimat RCMP Detachment says it was most likely a scam, and warns the public to be careful.
He also says the caller has what is described as a Jamaican accent.
The RCMP is asking if anyone else has received similar phone calls to contact the detachment.
