Grande Prairie RCMP Investigate Rental Fraud


GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – Since January 2019, Grande Prairie RCMP has received multiple reports of Fraud in relation to rental properties.

According to Police, in these cases, suspects are seeking monetary deposits from victims in response to online classified ads for rental accommodations in which the suspects do not own or live in. The suspect is then given the deposit and stops communication with the victim.

RCMP are advising the public to be vigilant while conducting online transactions over the internet and verify goods purchased prior to any monetary exchange.
