Victims get called at home or by e-mail by telemarketers posing as Microsoft troubleshooters. Suggest that your home computer is not running efficiently and to bring it up to speed will cost in a range of $160.00 to $300.00, credit card info is requested or arrangements to send money through wire service such as Western Union to complete transaction. Personal information is sought and in extreme cases computers have been hijacked and bank accounts have been emptied. The North Okanagan is easy pickings right now, and this fraud is prevalent. Spread the word to prevent families and friends from being a victim.
Three simple steps to follow when a crime is taking place:
Always consider your safety and let Emergency Services do what they do best.
Please share this information with all of your contacts and help prevent crimes from happening in your community.

About Me

My photo
I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
