SIN fraud

Police warn of a telephone fraud in the Eastern Ontario region involving social insurance numbers. A caller, claiming to represent a federal government department or other agency, phones people and tries to get them to verify their SIN card number, either by saying the number to confirm they are registered, or giving the first six digits of a SIN card number, and asking the victim to provide the final three digits to confirm whether or not it is their own. Do not give out this information and report such calls to the police. – Gregg Chamberlain
