Three separate frauds reported last Wednesday



The Amherstburg Police Service is reporting three separate frauds that were reported last Wednesday.

The first came from a homeowner on Crown Ridge Blvd. as police say a person was trying to connect an Amazon Alexa device and got onto a third party website asking for a fee. After contacting Amazon, police say the person was told it was not a valid website they had gone on. The person’s credit card was not charged but police say people are advised about such an issue.
