Cochrane, Alberta – On October 25th 2016, Cochrane RCMP was informed of a form of online fraud.
The victim received a pop up add on his computer from “Click 4 Support” for a refund. The victim was directed to contact the company which they did and the male on the phone requested the victim’s banking information to deposit the refund. Once this was done, the victim did see the refund in their account but was soon contacted again because they had given them too much money. The victim was directed to send a money gram for the extra funds. The company contacted the victim several times about the same causing the victim to suspect this was not legitimate and contacted the RCMP.
