Police received a report of a new scam coming from scammers saying they are with Bell MTS. Bell advised these types of frauds are new, what happens is they collect information from the customer such as; phone number, name and mailing information. Once they have the information the fraudster goes on line and orders a new phone through Bell under the victims account using the information they have acquired, which would be billed to the victim without them knowing it. Once the phone is shipped the fraudster starts calling advising the victim that "Bell" sent the wrong phone and it was to be a Samsung phone and send a new mailing slip to return the phone to a different address. The fraudster then would keep the iPhone and sell it. Do not pick up any packages that come in the mail from Bell unless you have ordered same.
