Scam Targets Local Small Businesses 

Peterborough Police Services' Financial Crimes Unit is warning local small business owners about a scam currently circulating in our area.
The scam involves the business accepting credit card payments over the phone for their product or services. The scammer then arrives or sends someone to pick up the product. A month later, the business determines that the credit card was fraudulent or compromised. The business is then out the amount of the product as well as any fees incurred.  During the months of July and August five local small businesses have reported this fraud to our Service.
 The Peterborough Police Service reminds all businesses that there is a high risk when taking credit card information over the phone and not verifying the information provided immediately.
 If local business owners have any questions or concerns please contact Detective Constable Keith Calderwood in the Financial Crimes Unit at 705-876-1122 ext. 214.
 To report a fraud please contact the Peterborough Police Service at 705-876-1122.
