Sometime between Thursday December 21 to Sunday December 24 someone spray painted a sign located on a property in Arnprior. The sign was defaced with grey coloured spray paint, and the damage was discovered on December 26 at the property on Gillies Grove Road. PC Kevin Rebertz is investigating.



Fraud

A victim contacted police to report they were locked out of their Facebook account. The victim recalled entering a contest on Facebook and providing personal information. They then noticed they were unable to access several accounts on social media. The victim was provided security advice and advised to contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre for more assistance.



Users of social media must be very vigilant about information they are providing to people online. Answering what seems like innocent questions like what is your favorite food is actually providing someone with information they may use against you at some point. For plenty of useful tips to protect yourself from fraud, go to the Canadian Anti-Fraud website at www.antifraudcentre.ca or call them at 1-888-495-8501.



Western Union Money Scams

If scammers had you pay via Western Union, you can now file a claim to get money back. The Federal Trade Commission is alerting consumers who lost money to scammers who told them to pay via Western Union's money transfer system between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017, that they can now file a claim to get their money back by going to Federal Trade Commission Western Union Refunds. Canadian consumers are eligible to make claims. All claims must be filed by February 12, 2018.
