Crime Warning

Shelburne County residents are being warned about a telephone scam making the rounds. A person identifying themselves as a grandchild or other loved one, says they are in trouble with a law enforcement agency and need a specified amount of cash wired to them to get out of jail. The caller will be accommodating and may provide a fraudulent law enforcement name. Any such incident should be reported to your local RCMP or Phonebusters.
