Bella Coola RCMP Detachment September Report

Bella Coola RCMP Detachment Report for September 2013

An alert valley resident brought a potential scam letter to the attention of the Bella Coola RCMP this week. He had received an envelope package, which at first glance appeared to indicate that he would be awarded $15,000. On closer examination the mailing is a solicitation to enter into a draw for the $15,000 and requiring the recipient to mail the company $20. Although this is not an outright fraud, it is so misleadingly written that it may prompt the unwary to respond for their “prize”. This solicitation for a gambling venture may not be legal in BC however may be an actual contest. On further review of the fine print, the odds and prize become substantially diminished. The complainant doesn’t know how this organization obtained his address and name, he observed that this promotion appears to be aimed at seniors.  Should you receive any similar unsolicited mail that you are unsure of, do not hesitate to bring it to the attention of the RCMP detachment for your area. You can also report the suspicious mail or internet contacts to www.phonebusters.com ,the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre or research their website for directions and advice.

 

Bella Coola Detachment file 2013-812 Overdue fisherman

On September 24th, 2013 Bella Coola RCMP received a report that a sport fisherman visiting Bella Coola over the weekend had failed to report to work that morning. Bella Coola Detachment patrolled the usual freshwater fishing sites and enlisted the assistance of BC Parks personnel, Interior Roads employees and the general public to watch for the man. The man was located safe and sound and no emergency situation had occurred. This incident highlights how important it is to advise someone when you are going to the wilderness, when you will be returning and to update those persons if you are delayed. Much thanks to everyone who has pitched in to ensure the safety of those in our valley.
