TIMMINS POLICE ISSUE FRAUD ADVISORY REGARDING FICTITIOUS VENDOR FESTIVAL

The Timmins Police Service is issuing a Public Advisory – Scam Alert is regards to an apparent phishing campaign that is circulating on Facebook.

The  event depicted on Facebook regarding a sales festival in Timmins is fictitious.

The event is not a legitimate affair and is not booked with the City of Timmins, nor has an application for a permit been received.

Apparently, this is a very common scam in Southern Ontario and designed to take advantage of small to mid-sized vendors  during these challenging times.
