Credit Card Fraud — Public Advisory

The Winnipeg Police Service reminds retailers and the public to be conscious of potential credit card frauds as a number of incidents have recently been reported.
Retailers have reported taking large volume orders over the phone for various items such as thermostats, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and/or generators. The items are paid for using not yet reported stolen credit card data and immediately picked up by courier. The fraudulently obtained items are eventually shipped to the suspect(s) for resale.
Upon the owner discovering their credit card has been compromised, the transaction is canceled and the retailer becomes responsible for the loss.
To protect yourself from credit card theft:

  • Check your card(s) often for suspicious activity
  • Use secure payment methods such a chip-equipped cards
  • Enable fraud alerts on your credit cards

Retailers are reminded to check their payment card agreement and to counsel employees on the requirements when accepting credit card orders. In addition, be aware of:

  • Companies/persons you've never done business with before
  • Out of province phone numbers associated with the merchant
  • A story that the business is from elsewhere and is relocating to Winnipeg
  • No in-person contact - phone and email only
  • Merchants using multiple card numbers after one or more are declined.
  • Card numbers that are required to be manually entered
  • Orders being picked up by a small or unknown courier company

If you feel you have been a victim of a fraud, notify your local police agency and contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center.
