opp-graphic-regularGREY HIGHLANDS – Grey County OPP warn residents to beware of a scam known as the 'Magic Voucher' scam.

On Monday, February 23, 2015 a Municipality of Grey Highlands resident received a letter from a Josef v. J. which included a 'Magic Voucher'. The suspect claims to be a fortune-teller and tells the individual that they, too, have special mediumistic qualities and possess a sub-spiritual contact arc, which very few people possess. He then goes on to say that he can tell them when, where and how they will soon achieve a great win of money through a lottery ....... and he will do this free of charge!

The only thing the person is asked to do is to complete and return the 'Magic Voucher' which asks two questions: What is your father's first name and what is your date of birth?

The Beer Store is currently a private, for-profit company owned by three multinational corporations, only one of which has even 50 per cent Canadian ownership.

The roots of this peculiar arrangement are part of our own story in Owen Sound. Back in our "Chicago of the north" days as a booming port and manufacturing town at the turn of the 19th Century, a local brewing industry also thrived serving our many hotels and bars.
