Hitman Scam Crops Up in Georgian Bluffs

New Email Scam Known To Anti-Fraud Authorities

A new scam just reared it’s ugly head in Georgian Bluffs, and it likely gave the recipient a start. OPP say the victim got an email on Sunday, claiming to be from a serial killer who’d been paid to kill the email recipient. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre says you should ignore these so called Hitman scams. They know the routine: the email claims you’ve been betrayed by someone, and the hitman won’t go through with it so long as you pay double what they were getting paid for the job. Best to just delete the email.
