West Grey Police are warning the business community of a scam that has come to the attention of the Police. A local business has received a letter from a so called INDUSTRY AND COMMERCE 2009 WITH A CANADIAN MAPLE LEAF AT THE TOP LEFT CORNER. The letter is not signed by anyone from the company, they are asking that the business owner sign the form and send $1500.00 in Canadian funds and the business would be published in the Canadian section of our CD-ROM and on the internet. The would-be company is based in Barcelona Spain. Police are asking any business receiving such letter NOT to act on it and destroy the letter.
