TORONTO — Police in Ontario are warning citizens of a new phone scam which involves suspects using “line-trapping” technology to tap into victims’ phone lines in order to steal personal information.
York Regional Police issued a warning about the scam Thursday after becoming aware of an incident in which fraudsters posed as their own officers.
Police say the victim received a call from a scammer advising her that she had been the victim of identity theft.
