#OPP Warn Of Scam In Brockton


Police say an online romance scam has cost a Brockton resident $42,000.

Yet another warning from the OPP about the romance scam.

This comes after a resident in Brockton was bilked out of 42 thousand dollars.

South Bruce OPP say the romance scam typically starts as an online relationship that quickly turns into a romance.

Before long, the requests for money start.

Police say modern, tech-savvy scammers have the ability to create very convincing scams.

They won’t hesitate to use the name of a legitimate company in an effort to gain your trust and trick you into paying them.

OPP say you should always be cautious with unsolicited emails, phone calls, letters, even visitors at your door.

Unsolicited means that you didn’t ask for it.

Police add you should always be certain who you are dealing with before you ever consider sending money or sharing personal information.
