Hanover Police are reminding members of the public to take all reasonable safety precautions while using online classified sites such as KIJIJI. Remember to verify the identity of the person you are sending money to as well as ensuring they actually have a product to sell. Hanover Police recently took a report from a victim of a puppy scam. The scammers collected a down payment and then stopped all contact with the buyer. If at all possible always meet in person in a safe location with potential sellers prior to exchanging money and products. 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.
