The Huntsville OPP is seeking assistance from the public to identify a suspect involved in a Fraud.  Police say that on Tuesday, March 26th a man called the elderly victim and pretended to be an employee of a bank.  The suspect had the victim attend the bank and withdraw money before returning home with the money in hand. The suspect then attended the victim's residence and took the money.

Police are reminding the public to be aware of phone and internet scams which continue to pose as a concern. If you receive suspicious phone calls and/or emails asking for your personal banking information and/or requesting you to transfer money, contact your financial institution directly to validate the request before making any transactions.
