City police issue fraud warningWednesday, October 02, 2013 by: Kate AdamsNorth Bay Police Service
The North Bay Police Service would like to warn the public that there have been complaints by various air miles customers reporting that they had been contacted by an automated message purportedly from Air Miles Canada notifying collectors that they had won reward miles.
Air Miles Canada has been contacted and has the following warning posted on their website:
AIR MILES does not use an automated message to notify Collectors they have won reward miles. Protect your Personal Information. Never give your AIR MILES Collector Account number or PIN in response to a telemarketing call.
We encourage the public to be cautious about sharing any personal information with anyone over the telephone, especially from calls that you did not initiate.
