This past weekend Aylmer Police received a complaint regarding publisher’s clearing house scam. Elderly female Aylmer resident received a call from a male claiming to be from Publisher’s Clearing House indicating she has won a cash prize and attempted to obtain her banking information. Fortunately, the female recognized this to be a scam and did not provide and personal banking information. Residents are reminded not to provide any personal banking information over the phone. Scammers often use aggressive tactics to try to obtain personal information from victims. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
