Here’s another phone scam hoping to separate you from your money.
Collingwood OPP say an automated voice on the other end of the phone says “Canadian Majesty calling. Federal charges have been levied against your SIN number. Do not proceed to a federal building or you will be arrested. Press 1 to speak to a justice of the peace.”
Do not press 1, do not provide the caller with any personal information or send them any payment. Instead, hang up the phone and call your local police or contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or online at the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre to report the incident.
Collingwood OPP says they had six complaints about this call Wednesday.
