The O.P.P. is warning people of a new scam suggesting that you’ve won millions.

The Haliburton Highlands O.P.P. are spreading the word of a new scam making its way through the area. According to the O.P.P., it received complaints about people getting a phone call saying that they have won $12.5 million dollars and a new car. The caller goes on to say that your new car is being held at the border and all that you need to do is pay $3,500 in taxes to get the vehicle on its way to you.

Through the process, the caller reportedly gives you the name of a fake border and customs agent, and a fake call back number. The police say the caller will give you the option to pay via credit card, trans-union or money order, or in some cases, they might give you the option to pay in gift cards or I-tunes cards.

The O.P.P. is reminding people that you should never give your credit card or banking information to anyone you have not contacted for services. As well the O.P.P. say that no legitimate business would ask you to pay in I tunes cards.
