The Haliburton Highlands OPP would like to remind residents about the Mystery Shopper scam.

Scammers are sending people a cheque from a large business or company. The victim deposits the cheque and withdraws an amount and deposits it into another bank account provided by thieves.

The fraudsters withdraw the money and the victim is on the hook for the original cheque that has bounced and any other bank or service charges.

Our local OPP says to not send any money, because this is a scam.
