Please protect yourselves and remember these tips:  If you are not comfortable with a phone call, hang up the phone. If you did not enter a draw, you can’t be the winner. If it sounds too good to be true, it’s likely not true. This time of the year the grandparent scam seems to come back. Should you receive a call from a long lost relative and you’re not sure if it’s who you think it is, you can always obtain a call back number and call their family to see if the call is legit.
The Altona Police Service pays cash for information which leads to a conviction. If you have any information regarding these or any other crimes please call the Altona Police Service at 204-324-5373.
