Police are again warning you to be aware of all types of fraudulent activity, and are highlighting three cases.
Whitehorse RCMP say two recent scams have cost local victims $40,000.
Police say two seniors purchased a computer program online, but didn't receive it, and after a couple of months, the company contacted them with an excuse, and they would be reimbursed.
Instead, money was shifted between accounts looking like a refund had been provided, then told the victims too much money had been transferred, and asked the excess money be used to purchase iTunes gift cards.
A total of $30,000 was ripped off in the case.
In another instance, a resident received a call from someone claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency, saying she owed taxes following an audit, and demanded the amount owing in iTunes gift cards, worth $10,000.
Another victim was asked to provide photography services for a birthday party, and when too much was sent via cheque, the scammer asked for the excess funds to be transferred to a different account, which raised suspicion, so the resident called police.
Police are warning you to not provide any personal information over the phone, and hang up immediately if you suspect a fraudulent call.
RCMP say the scammer may try to impersonate someone, or stress you out by demanding quick action.
