Northern Health issues advisory for restaurants

By Staff

Restaurant owners are being advised of a telephone scam.


Northern Health says it has become aware of a scam in which a caller identifies themself as a health inspector and asks for information such as tax details.

Reports suggest the caller has threatened a fine if the requested information is not provided.

Northern Health officials say they do not request sensitive information over the phone and their personnel carry nametags that properly identify them.

The public should be careful when providing sensitive information over the phone or internet and should ask for a person’s identification if asked in person.
