Community Alert - Toronto Police Services - 33 Division

Ask for Identification

This message is to remind people that you should never open the door to someone you don't know.

If you are having various healthcare workers attend your home, make sure you know exactly when they are coming and that they present you with proper identification prior to entry. If they make you feel uneasy, make a phone call to the agency and confirm their identity.

Recently in 33 Division there have been some instances of people posing as health care workers to gain access to your home. Once inside they may take note of your personal information, ie credit card numbers or steal the credit card itself. The victims have later found money missing from their accounts.

So remember to be cautious when people are entering your home and don't be afraid to ask for identification.

Call Police if you have been a victim of this type of crime.

If you have any questions regarding this Community Alert, please contact the Community Safety Officer, P.C. Kelly Downie at 416-808-3395
