Agassiz resident catches onto potential computer scam

One vigilant Agassiz resident reported a fraudulent phone call on Oct. 31. A man called someone, stating that Windows had detected a problem with the complainant’s computer. The man stated he would need $150 to fix the problem.

Agassiz RCMP’s Sgt. Stuart Falebrinza is reminding people to never provide any financial or personal information to unknown recipients.

And on Nov. 5, they were notified of a theft of two 115 HP, Yamaha boat motors, grey in color.  The theft happened while the boats were in the water at the end of Mill Road in Kilby. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211.

Attempted break in

Agassiz RCMP received a report of an attempted break and enter to a residence on Naismith Avenue in Harrison Hot Springs on Nov. 6.

Stuff the cruiser

The Agassiz RCMP will once again attempt to “Stuff the Cruiser.” Their annual event will take place on Dec. 15, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Supervalu.

Falebrinza said he would like to thank everyone for their support in the past, and would like to remind residents that all donations received help out those less fortunate within the community.
