Businesses must be aware of scammer working angle
Police are urging local businesses to beware a new scam in the Okanagan.
Apparently, there is a woman attending local clothing stores claiming that she is doing sponsored events for SUN FM radio station.
The woman requests outfits to promote the store at these events but then never returns with the clothing.
The woman is described to be in her late 20s, 5-foot 4-inches in height with light medium-length brown hair, brown eyes and dark complexion.
If approached in a similar fashion, the police recommend that you:
• Obtain identification from the person
• Confirm their identity with the company that the person claims to represent
• Obtain a credit card authorization in the event the items are not returned.
