The Chatham-Kent police would like to inform citizens about an attempted fraud.
Recently, a citizen reported that she received three phone calls from people purporting to be Cogeco representatives. Each caller informed the citizen that she had won a free trip to Florida and the Caribbean and asked for her personal information. The citizen did not provide any information to the callers and contacted Cogeco to determine if the calls were legitimate and found they were not. All three calls originated from different locations – Tampa Florida, Montreal Quebec, and Toronto Ontario.
The Chatham-Kent police remind citizens never to give personal information to strangers. If you believe the call is suspicious, contact the police immediately.
