OPP News - Worrisome Scam
The Napanee OPP would like to caution the public about a reoccurring online scam that was reported yesterday from a concerned citizen.
The victim received an email from a person purporting to be a “Murder Agent”. The email is very threatening and claims that the sender was hired to kill the victim. This email is a variation of the “hitman” scam where the sender demands a large sum of money in return for not carrying out the mission.
The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre has many copies of these emails on file. Should you receive such a solicitation, do not respond to it and delete it.
