Online scam targets child care operators
from Global News
A popular internet scam has a new target: day care operators. Calgary's Kimberly Alcock-Jenkins runs a dayhome, and nearly fell victim to the scam after a man claiming to be moving from Mexico contacted her about child care. They exchanged several messages online, before the man sent Alcock-Jenkins a cheque to hold a spot. However, it was made out for more than required. The man said it was a mistake and asked her to wire the rest to a shipping company he was using to move his furniture.
