The RCMP is warning you about fraudulent telephone calls which appear to be coming from the RCMP. Those called are told there is a warrant for their arrest and they can take care of the warrant by making a payment via bitcoin or money transfer. The fraudsters are using Caller ID spoofing which allows scammers to disguise their call as it will appear to be coming from local or familiar numbers to trick people into answering the phone and trusting the caller. In this instance, the number displayed is a valid RCMP phone number.
RCMP Corporal Julie Courchaine explains they've been made aware this incident occurred a number of times last week in Manitoba. She reminds you the RCMP would never contact individuals through email or telephone to request payment or monetary transfers.
