Police northwest of Toronto are warning of a new twist to an old scam. OPP say a resident of Huron South, a community 40 kilometres north of London, was bilked out of nearly $3,000 by scammers who recruit unwitting victims into non-existent COVID-19 social distancing compliance audits. The scheme is a variation of the age-old ‘Mystery Shopper Scam,’ police say.
