SCAM ALERT: Halton Police Warn Residents of Fraud
If you have an e-mail address or plan on watching the World Cup, you'll want to read this.
E-mails are being sent out claiming you’ve won World Cup tickets or a lottery prize to attend a match in Russia.
But they’re just phishing e-mails from people looking to steal personal information, say police, who are also warning folks to beware of fake websites selling team apparel.
If you believe you've been a target or victim of fraud, report the incident by contacting Halton police and calling the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
