Community Alert - Toronto Police Services - 33 Division

Bell Canada Alert

The Toronto Police want to warn anyone that has a telephone to be advised of a recent scam.

An individual will telephone you and identify himself as a Bell Canada Technician conducting a test of your phone lines. He will ask you to push the number 9 and then the number 0 followed by the # (pound) key and then ask you to hang up. This will give the individual full access your own personal phone line, which in turn allows long distance phone calls to be made.

Bell Canada has confirmed this information and that most of these phone calls have originated from local jails and prisons.

The Toronto Police urg e you to hang up immediately on these individuals. Do not follow any of their instructions or give out any personal information.
