Police are warning residents about yet another phone scam in the area.

The Killaloe OPP recent received a call from a resident say they’d been contacted by someone advising them they’d won the lottery.

The caller told this person they were in a winner in Lotto 6-49 and then asked for a bank account number so they could directly deposit the windfall.

Police are asking the public to keep their personal information just that – personal! If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. So police are advising people to not hand over information without first making some phone calls, or going online to see if there are other similar-type frauds taking place.

Don’t be a victim.
