On May 12th, 2017 Quadra RCMP received a report in which the victim lost several hundred dollars in a computer scam. The suspect was calling from a New York area code and gained access to the victims computer. The scam artist then convinced the victim to buy several hundred dollars in Itunes gift cards and the card numbers were then given to the suspect. Quadra RCMP would like to remind the public that there are many different types of scams out there trying to get your hard earned money. One of the indicators of a scam like this is when the scam artist asks for money in the form of Itunes gift cards. Normal reputable companies do not ask for Itunes gift cards for payment. If you have any doubts call the Quadra RCMP before you part with your money.
