OPP Warn Area Youth Of Quick Cash Banking Scam

Southern Georgian Bay OPP are warning area youth, and their families, of a recent scam making the rounds of local high schools.

The scam consists of students being approached by other students inside the school and being told they can make quick cash by giving their banking information to help support a charity. The scammer then uses the banking information to withdraw cash from the unsuspecting donors bank account.

Parents are advised to review safe banking practices with their children and warn them against giving any personal information including identification and banking information unless they can be certain about where the information is going or by who it will be used. Never give out your personal passwords.
