Vancouver police issue a fraud alert

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

Vancouver Police are warning the public about a telephone fraud that hits close to home.

The telemarketer himself as an employee of the Vancouver Police Department, and asks for donations to support anti-bullying efforts.

Police say the potential victim did the right thing by hanging up the phone, and they say the VPD does NOT ever solicit over the phone.

And Vancouver Police are asking businesses to review their computer security, after a suspect hacked into the system of a local business, and then sent an internal e-mail requesting the transfer of a large sum of money.
