The public's assistance is requested in combatting this by reporting directly to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC). 

Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (www.antifraudcentre.ca or 1-888-495-8501).

Nationally the RCMP and the CAFC have been working with International Law Enforcement partners to disrupt and dismantle the illegal call centre network in India, which is responsible for perpetrating the CRA tax scam and other mass marketing related scams. The results of these combined law enforcement efforts from September of 2018 to January of 2019 include the takedown of approximately 40 call centres and the arrests of over 60 individuals, who are now facing prosecution in India. The scam is being committed by organized crime groups operating out of multiple locations throughout India.

The RCMP are continuing to develop leads and information on the locations of these illegal call centres for enforcement purposes, in an effort to dismantle and disrupt these types of mass marketing schemes.

The RCMP offers the following tips to help the public avoid the CRA tax scam:

The CRA will not call and threaten you to pay a tax debt;
The CRA will not call, leave a voice message, text or email you advising of a warrant of arrest for a tax debt;
The CRA will not request that you pay a tax debt through the use of crypto currencies such as Bitcoin or gift cards, or money transfers;
The CRA will not have you deported if you do not pay an owed tax debt;


Report suspected fraud. If you suspect a CRA tax scam, STOP! HANG UP THE PHONE!


REPORTING......   If you believe you are a victim or if you have information in relation to those responsible for committing or helping those committing the CRA tax scam, please report it to Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (www.antifraudcentre.ca or 1-888-495-8501).

Fraudulent Emails and Phone Calls

Battleford’s RCMP would like let everyone know that there are fraudulent emails and phone calls that are occurring in the area, where people are seeking personal information and/or donations on behalf of different agencies including the RCMP.

 

Although it is the season of giving and many agencies do make contact with people for a genuine purpose there are fraudsters out there that are malicious and looking to take advantage of people and defraud them of their hard earned money.

 

It is suggested that if you receive a call for a donation to any agency that you request information on that agency and do your research before committing to any type of donation. 

 

As well you should never give your personal information such as date of birth, social insurance number or other such information out over the phone or via email.  Never reply to these emails or open any attached documents.

 

If the person or persons claim they are from your financial institution and there are issues with you account, go and see your bank directly or call the number on the back of your bank card to discuss the situation.  It is very rare that a bank would ever contact you over email or via a phone call.  It is always safer if you contact them directly yourself.

 

Battleford’s RCMP would also like to remind you that we do not call looking for donations to programs nor to the RCMP.

 

Should you receive a phone call, email or letter from anyone requesting personal information please do your background checks and if in doubt call the local detachment to discuss the situation.

 

These types of frauds can see people lose significant amounts of money and even their life savings.  Often the perpetrators prey on the elderly even claiming to be relatives and requesting money to help them through a variety of situations or hard times.

Dramatic Increase in STARS Lottery Scams – Unity, Saskatchewan

Over the holiday season, the Unity RCMP have noted a significant increase in the number of lottery scams reported to police. Most notably, were calls from Scammers claiming to represent STARS Air Ambulance and telling people that they have won new vehicles, as well as cash prizes ranging from $30,000.00 to $175,000.00.  Everyone dreams of winning a big lottery prize. Unfortunately Scammers are known to take advantage of this and will attempt to manipulate people by falsely claiming they have won an extravagant prize and asking them to send payment in order to claim their prize. To protect yourself, always keep these points in mind:

You will never be asked to send money to claim any lottery prize. If you are being asked to send a cheque, money order, or payment of any kind to claim your lottery prize, it is a scam. Hang up the phone or delete the email.
You can check with STARS directly to verify if you are a winner. You are able to check the official lottery winners list on their website or contact them to confirm if you have won a prize. Always use the official number and website, and not the ones a Scammer may provide. In Saskatchewan you can call 1-855-449-2444, or email [email protected] to see if you have actually won a prize, you can also visit http:// starslotterysaskatchewan.ca/  to check the list of official prize winners.
If you receive a scam lottery call, do not under any circumstances provide personal details, or send any money. Please hang up, record the number calling, then advise your local police department or the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501, or visit their website at http://www.antifraudcentre- centreantifraude.ca/. 
Anyone with information about this or any other crimes are asked to call the Unity RCMP at (306) 228-6300, the Wilkie RCMP at (306) 843-3480 or the Macklin RCMP at (306) 753-2171.

Revenue Canada Email Scam

Humboldt RCMP are warning the public about a new scam involving the Canada Revenue Agency. In this scam, an email is received advising that you have an Interact e-transfer from the CRA with a tax refund. This email appears legitimate and there is usually a short time frame to accept the money transfer.  By accepting the transfer you are allowing other people to access your computer and on-line banking information. DO NOT accept the e-transfer. CRA does not send out e-transfers.  CRA only handles refunds by either depositing the funds directly into you bank account or a cheque is mailed to you.
 
For information on how to protect yourself against fraud, including how to recognize a scam and examples of fraudulent communications, visit the Canada Revenue Agency website: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/ scrty/frdprvntn/menu-eng.html

Missing-Mekayla Bali

The investigation to locate Mekayla Bali continues and the RCMP is asking the public for their assistance.  Mekayla was last seen at the STC Bus Depot in Yorkton at 1:45 p.m. on April 12, 2016.

Mekayla is described as a Caucasian female, approximately 5'2" tall and weighs approximately 114 lbs, with blonde hair and blue eyes. She is known to change her appearance: she has red-ish hair which can be dyed blonde or other colours and she wears her hair down, pulled back, straight or wavy. She sometimes wears dark rimmed (teal) glasses and a teal/mint coloured infinity scarf. When Mekayla was reported missing she was 16-years-old; she has since turned 17-years-old. Mekayla also goes by the name Mekayla NIEBERGALL.

Since Mekayla was reported missing by her family on April 12, 2016, investigators have been working diligently to locate her.  A critical part of this has been tracking her movements and actions in the hours before she was last seen.  By examining evidence obtained through witness statements, video surveillance and other investigational techniques, investigators have determined the following whereabouts for Mekayla on April 12, 2016:

Approximately 8:20 a.m. – arrived at Sacred Heart High School
Between 8:25 and 8:30 a.m. - leaves Sacred Heart High School
Between 8:30 and 8:40 a.m. - walks eastbound on Smith Street West from the intersection of Smith Street West and Gladstone Avenue North
Between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. - enters Terry’s Pawn and Bargain on 3rd Avenue North.
Between 8:50 and 8:55 a.m. - enters and then exits the TD Bank at 63 Broadway Street East
Between 8:55 and 9:00 a.m. - walks eastbound on Broadway Street East
Between 9:00 and 9:15 a.m. - enters Tim Hortons at 160 Broadway Street East
Between 9:15 and 9:30 a.m. - exits Tim Hortons and walks northbound on 8th Avenue North. 
Between 9:30 and 9:40 a.m. - walks westbound on 100-200 block Broadway Street East then momentarily walks northbound on 6th Avenue North
Between 9:40 and 9:50 a.m. - walks eastbound in the parking lot of the 100-200 block of Broadway Street East between Giant Tiger and Superstore
Between 9:50 and 9:55 a.m. - re-enters Tim Hortons at 160 Broadway Street East
Between 10:40 and 10:45 a.m. – leaves Tim Hortons and walks westbound on Broadway Street East past the Kia Dealership, crosses the 7th Avenue intersection toward the Ramada Hotel, turns around and walks southbound on 7th Avenue for a short distance, turns around and walks past the Ramada Hotel, continuing west on Broadway Street East and past Robins Donuts
Between 10:45 and 11:55 a.m. – whereabouts unknown
Between 11:55 a.m and 12 p.m. - enters Sacred Heart High School
Between 12:00 and 12:05 p.m. - leaves Sacred Heart High School
Between 12:15 and 1:00 p.m. – purchases a meal at the Trail Stop Restaurant in the STC Bus Depot Building on 1 Ave North
Between 1:00 and 1:45 p.m. – leaves the STC Bus Depot

Police have received information regarding an unknown adult male who may have information relating to Mekayla’s actions before she was last seen.  This male may have been with Mekayla at the STC Bus Depot on 1st Avenue North in Yorkton.  This unknown male has a tattoo below his left elbow of a cross with flames around it (see attached image). He is described as:

Male between 40 and 50 years old
5’10” to 6’2” in height
Stocky, medium build with muscular arms
Dark hair
Wearing a dark navy vest jacket with an elastic waist band in back
Has a tattoo on his triceps/bicep area of his right arm that appeared to be a circle with several designs with multiple colors
Has a scar or scratch below his left eye on his cheek approximately ¾ to an inch in length, appeared to be red in color

This individual is NOT a suspect. Investigators simply wish to identify this individual and speak with him to assist with efforts to locate Mekayla.

While Mekayla was last seen in the STC Bus Depot in Yorkton, investigators have spoken with the employees working at the bus depot and determined she did not board a bus on April 12. Rumours have circulated that Mekayla is in either Regina or Saskatoon.  Additionally, several sightings and tips have been reported to police. These have all been investigated and Mekayla has not been located.

Investigators have found no evidence Mekayla has a passport and investigators have no reason to believe she has left Canada. However, as is standard practice in an investigation like this, our law enforcement partners at border crossings have been notified the RCMP is looking for Mekayla.  All leads are being thoroughly investigated and investigators are not ruling out any possibilites.

Investigators will continue looking for Mekayla until she is located.  Anyone who was in the areas where Mekayla was last seen on April 12, 2016 is asked to please take a moment and think back to that day and contact police with any information relating to her whereabouts.  Investigators are hoping a member of the public will be able to provide information that will assist with filling in the time period of 10:45 – 11:55 a.m.  If you have information to share or if you see Mekayla, do not wait - please contact police or report it IMMEDIATELY.
