Apple Gift Card Fraud

Hanover Police continue to investigate an online fraud, which recently occurred. In this fraud, the victim received several Facebook messages saying he had won a $50000.00 price. The fraudster requested the victim obtain Apple Gift Cards in order to receive his winnings. The victim purchased several thousand dollars in gift cards, which were then provided online to the fraudster. The victim was never awarded the price and contacted police. Hanover Police are reminding everyone that no legitimate contest would ever request upfront money be sent to claim a price.  If anyone has information about this fraud, they are asked to contact the Hanover Police Service or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by submitting a secure Web Tip.
