SCAM ALERT: Oakville Residents Warned of Latest Scam
Don’t. Fall. For. It.
Oakville residents are being warned of a scam involving a phone call.
If someone calls to schedule appointments for a gas or water meter inspection - claiming to be from the Town of Oakville - it’s not a legitimate call.
The caller will ask to book an appointment for a natural gas inspection.
A similar scheme is underway in Burlington and Halton police are investigating.
The Town of Oakville says the Halton police fraud unit has been notified, in addition to Halton Region and Union Gas.
