Princeton RCMP would like to advise the public of a telephone scam that has come to the attention of the police.

This involves an unknown individual posing as a family member or a representative of the family member. The caller requests that you send money to assist the family member and details are provided on how to transfer the money.

Once the money is transferred, the person does not hear from the caller again and when they finally speak to the family member, it is realized that the call was not legitimate.

RCMP would like to caution the public of such phone scams and if you do receive a suspicious phone call of this nature to contact Phone Busters at 1-888-495-8501.
