On Wednesday the 11th of September 2019 Owen Sound Police were contacted by a local hotel advising of a scam targeting people staying in hotel rooms.

The fraudsters were calling and asking for room numbers and upon being transferred would tell the occupants that they were overbilled. The fraudsters would then request the occupant to provide their credit card number for a refund.

At this time, it appears that no one has fallen for the scam.

Police are advising the public in an effort to prevent anyone in the future from falling victim to this new scam.
