Phone Scam in Bancroft Area
The Moose has been made aware of a phone scam that is happening in the area. According to a listener, a company calls your home and offers a cruise for $2,000, which can be taken anytime in the next two years. The callers then ask for your VISA number and other information. Caller I.D. apparently shows a local number, but it is a false one. You are advised to never give credit card numbers and other banking information over the phone. Contact the OPP or Phone Busters if you suspect a call may be a scam.
