24 May 12, police investigated an internet fraud via Facebook. A Port Elgin person was requested through Facebook to send $750. to Africa in order to claim a prize of $75,000. This person sent the $750. then was requested to once again send more money and thought better of it and called police. The matter was referred to Phonebusters. I have made this very clear in many press releases; there is no free money anywhere. Hang onto your hard earned money. If you bought a lottery ticket and you win, it will not cost you money to collect your winnings. If you won a lottery you never entered you should take note. If you are asked to send money to get money, it is a scam.
