The Ottawa Police Service warns seniors of scam in the region
The Ottawa Police Service and Crime Stoppers would like to advise the public of an ongoing scam that now appears to target seniors in the Ottawa area. Although a relatively small number of these incidents have been reported to the Ottawa Police, it is believed that more individuals may have been victimized and may not have reported the incident.
The scam involves someone contacting an elderly person and pretending to be a grandchild or other family member in trouble with the police. The person will tell the victim that he has been arrested by a police service outside of Ottawa and requires bail money. The victim is given the number to call for verification, either pretending to be a lawyer’s number for the grandson or the sergeant in charge of the police station (or variations).
The caller usually implores the victim not to contact the parents or relative so that they don’t get into any more trouble. The victim is then asked to use a money wire service to send several thousands of dollars for bail. Canadian Police agencies do not contact individuals for bail money and certainly do not use money wire services. To guard against this type of scam, people should exercise due diligence by:
1. Getting the name of the apparent lawyer and contact them by getting their listed numbers from phone books, Bell 4-1-1 service or other such internet services. NOT THE NUMBER PROVIDED BY THE CALLER.
2. If a particular police agency is named, contact that agency directly using the numbers listed in the phone book or web page.
3. Contact your local police agency if you receive such a call. If you have call display, write down the caller’s number and provide it to your police agency when reporting the incident.
4. Contact the family members directly themselves for verification that the ”grandchild” is in the apparent jurisdiction.
5. Never send money through money wire services to persons you do not know personally. The money can be picked up anywhere in the world once it is given a transaction number.
Anyone with information on this fraud, or any other fraud, is asked to contact the Ottawa Police Call Centre at 613-236-1222, ext. 7300, or Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).

Interested in volunteering with the Crime Stoppers Youth Committee? Please contact
The youth in our community play a key role in crime awareness, prevention and resolution. It is important to engage the youth consistently to ensure they have a vested interest in their quality of life in the National Capital Area. Consultation with the youth in our community has proven to be educational to say the least. The Crime Stoppers Youth Committee members are key players in the future of our organization.
The youth have led the way in social networking and we are working hard to increase the momentum of these communications strategies.
Text your Tip
Using your mobile device text to: (TEXT NO LONGER SUPPORTED) then in the message field type in the key word “tip252” followed by your information. Remember- Texting your tip is confidential and anonymous.
All too often the youth are hesitant to report crime because they fear social retribution. Crime Stoppers eliminates the fear of retaliation. The beauty of sending a tip to Crime Stoppers is no one will ever know who reported the crime and you never have to identify yourself or go to court. Here are some of the crimes affecting the Youth:
These are just a few of the issues faced by our youth. They face more and more adult issues in these modern times. Many of these issues are only now becoming a matter of pubic interest.
Please visit the Posters page to download and print our youth oriented posters for use in the community.
We welcome the youth to become a part of the Crime Stoppers team by getting involved in community events and reporting crime when they witness it.
