False alarm:

During the evening hours of February 24th, the Kitimat RCMP was advised of an alarm that was set off on the 700 block of Commercial Ave. The investigating officers attended and had found an unlocked door.

Fraudulent money withdrawal:

On February 26th, the Kitimat RCMP received a report from a local citizen that had monies fraudulently withdrawn from their bank account. It was reported that the victim had received a call about some money that was in a bank account and asked if they wanted to invest it. The decision to invest it was made, but then another call was received that they required more money and a much larger sum of money was e-transferred from their account and sent to another account. Investigation revealed the other account was from over seas and the e-transfer was completed, as such the money was un recoverable. If you are the victim of this type of activity or to learn about frauds and scam, please visit the Canadian Anti-fraud center. (2024-653)
