Signs and Scammers In Kincardine

Kincardine | by Kevin Bernard  

Police warn about scammer and the jail sentence if caught removing road signs


Someone has removed two street signs along Durham street in Kincardine, one a speed limit sign and the other a pedestrian crossing sign.

South Bruce OPP say the tampering was discovered early Sunday morning.

The street signs had been pulled out of the ground , and both were found lying on the ground a short distance away.

The OPP remind residents that the maximum penalty for mischief endangering life is life in prison, but the consequences could also last a lifetime for anyone that was seriously injured or killed as a result of this act. 

Meanwhile, another computer scam is making the rounds.

On Saturday morning -- South Bruce OPP received a report of a computer repair scam from a resident in Kincardine. 

The scammer phoned to offer assistance because the computer required important repairs that could be done remotely. 

The scammer was allowed remote access to the computer which resulted in a 900 dollar credit card charge. 

Residents are reminded to be cautious when receiving unsolicited phone calls.  

If you didn’t make the call, then how do you know the person on the phone is who they say they are? 

Anyone interested in more information on fraud can call the Canadian Anti Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or check online at http://www.antifraudcentre.ca
