Police force in Kingston, Ontario, Canada has issued a regional scam alert after receiving several reports that some scammers have been calling local residents in Kingston and impersonating police officers.
The criminals told victims that their personal banking details, social insurance number, and other information had been used in a major fraud case or money laundering case. Victims were asked to send funds converted to Bitcoin to fix the issue.
There have been two reported cases of the scam in Kingston, and on both occasions, police say the scammers were able to get a total of about $25,000 CAD ( $18,000 USD) from the victims.
The public is being reminded that the Kingston Police will never contact you requesting payment over the phone. In addition to this no police service would ever request any form of payment using Bitcoin.
