This was delivered to our local police. How dumb do they get?

Oops! Scam artists target North Bay Police Service

Even North Bay Police Service isn't immune from the typical cash-for-nothing Scams operating these days.

The service recently received a $4,000 cheque made out to a fictitious person at police headquarters.

The cheque was drawn from a legitimate company in California.

An accompanying instruction sheet advised the receiver to cash it and then send a portion of the money back to the sender.

The city police fraud co-ordinator contacted the California company and advised its banking practices may have been compromised, while the firm confirmed the cheque was fake.

An instruction sheet that came with the cheque was written in broken English and it was obvious it was what is commonly referred to as a "Nigerian Scam," police say.

The fake cheque was delivered by a legitimate courier.
