Police are warning the public after receiving reports of suspected phone scams. The first incident occurred on June 16, 2017 when a woman contacted local homeowners via phone. The caller spoke in Polish, the first language of the homeowners, and led them to believe their niece was in trouble and required money. A short while later, a male dressed in police-looking attire showed up at the door to collect money. The residents felt compelled to turn over the funds. This was a fraud and investigation determined that their nice was safe. On July 4, 2017, Waterloo Regional Police received a call from a man who was making inappropriate and somewhat threatening comments about the Canadian government and the Canadian Prime Minister. He gave police an address of his residence. Police responded to this residence to speak to him, only to find that this was a hoax and that this address belonged to homeowners who had been receiving several ongoing calls from a man. The man spoke Hindi, the homeowners first language. The caller had attempted to defraud the homeowners using different scams such as the Tax and Immigration Scam, which tries to make people believe they owe money. On this date, the homeowner had become upset and yelled at the caller. A short while later, police arrived on their doorstep. It is believed the caller contacted police to intimidate the homeowner so the next time he called, the homeowner would comply with his demands. Police are reminding the public to: 1) Verify who they are speaking with 2) Call the agency back after you have taken steps to locate the agency number yourself. Do not call using the one provided by the caller 3) Ask questions 4) Dont give out any personal or financial information 5) Dont argue or fight with the caller. Hang up. Block the number or, if necessary, consider changing your phone number 6) If unsure of what to do or for advice, call police at 519-653-7700
