*This is a common scam where the fraudster claims they are from a windows service leading the victim to believe their computer is broken and claims to be able to ‘fix the problem’.  Microsoft does not monitor computers in search for owners who are experiencing technical difficulties or acquired a virus. Do not give out any personal information. Do not click on any suggested links or websites as this will allow them access to your computer. You may be at risk for them to hack or infect your computer and steal personal information. To avoid this hang up the phone and delete the email and DONOT allow anyone unknown to you access to your computer. 

If you are the victim of a fraud or victim of identity theft we suggest that you place flags on all your accounts and report to both credit bureaus Equifax and TransUnion  

How to protect yourself - Identity theft  

* Shred all personal and financial documents
* Check your bank and credit card statements monthly and report any suspicious activity
* Report any missing mail or statements right away
*Obtain a credit report once a year for free through the two credit bureaus, Equifax and

Crime Prevention Tips – Robbery

*Stay alert and know who is in your business and where they are. Watch for customers who hang around the store without buying anything. Be aware of suspicious activity outside of your store. If in doubt call police!

* Make it a habit of greeting customers when they enter your business, ask them if you can assist them. A potential robber does not want attention drawn to them.

* Keep your store well-lit inside and out, and windows unobstructed.

* Keep small amounts of cash in the till. Avoid receiving large bills from customers, making it a point to say you don’t keep large amounts of cash on hand.

* Install a panic or robbery alarm, and if your store is equipped with video surveillance ensure that at each start of the day the video equipment is operating properly.

* If you are being robbed, do not panic, take deep breaths. Your personal safety is much more important than any merchandise or money.

* Listen closely to what the robber is saying do not resist, do not make any sudden moves, and do not follow the robber out of the store. Call 911 immediately.

How can I assist with the Police Investigation?

*Call 911 immediately! Stay Alert.

*Lock your doors, make any observation if the robber fled on foot or jumped into an awaiting car.

*Do not touch anything; do not clean up anything if a mess was made during the robbery.

* Try and remember the description of the robber, the height, the weight, and any distinguishing characteristics such as tattoos, piercing, scars, and accents.
 
* Try to remember the exact words spoken by the robber.

* If a weapon is used you will be asked later to describe the weapon.

The BPS would like to remind the community that with milder temperatures comes the
increased responsibility of ensuring your valuables are protected. Warmer weather
usually has us bringing out valuables such as lawn furniture, garden decorations and
bicycles. This is also a time when we leave doors and windows open and unlocked.
If it is valuable to you, don’t leave an item in a place where it can be easily stolen.
Please report any incidents of theft and/or attempt theft of your property to the Brantford Police Service. In the case above, if the victim did not report the bike stolen to the BPS we would not have been able to return the bike to the owner.
