    Fraud Prevention Month 2016 Call Spoofing Caller-ID spoofing has become easily available and is used by most telemarketing scammers. They use it not only to hide their number, but also to trick the victim into thinking they are being called by the CRA, CIC, RCMP or a reputable business. #FPM2016 http://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/fraud-escroquerie/spoofing-falsification-eng.htm

    March is Fraud Prevention Month, and the RCMP is warning people to be wary of e-mail scams, especially those that look like they are coming from legitimate sources, but are really designed to gain access to sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details and sometimes, indirectly, money. Recently a citizen in Chester, Nova Scotia received an e-mail that asks the recipient to update their bank account information within 48 hours or their bank accounts will be suspended. The email then asks the recipient to enter their account and personal information. This type of scam is called ‘phishing’, a common online scam designed to trick you into disclosing your personal or financial information for the purpose of financial fraud or identity theft. To protect yourself against these types of fraud scams, verify that what you're being told is the actual truth. If you receive a similar e-mail, contact the business that supposedly sent it to confirm the request before providing any personal or banking information. Also ask yourself why the business would be asking for personal information over the phone or by e-mail when they likely have such information on file for you already. Often times, a closer look at the e-mail shows grammatical and spelling errors, which may also cause some question regarding its authenticity. For more information on different types of fraud, or to report a suspected fraud incident, please visit the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website at: http://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/. Citizens can also report a fraud incident by calling 1-888-495-8501. As well, all Canadian Banks and most other companies that deal with money and/or payments have fraud prevention and reporting information on their websites.

    #TrafficTuesday – Providing breath samples If a police officer suspects that a motorist may be impaired, they may demand that the motorist provide a roadside breath sample on an Approved Screening Device. Depending on the reading, two different outcomes may occur. If a motorist provides a breath sample with a Blood Alcohol Content of between 50mg% to 80mg% (50-80 milligrams of alcohol in one hundred milliliters of blood), they fall within the “warn” range. The driver can then be subject to administrative penalties and an immediate roadside prohibition. If a motorist provides a breath sample with a Blood Alcohol Content above 80mg%, they will register a “fail” reading on the Approved Screening Device and will be required to provide further breath samples at a detachment. A subsequent breath sample that exceeds the legal Blood Alcohol Content limit of 80mg% means that the person will be charged for impaired driving. Remember – drinking and driving puts your life and everyone else on the road in danger. If you consume alcohol, don’t get behind the wheel.

    Four-month-old Nova Scotia RCMP puppy, Hamer (pronounced “Hammer”), has one goal: to become a police dog. He is currently in the force’s puppy program, where he works to develop the foundational skills and characteristics required for a career in the Police Dog Service. At this point in his training, Hamer is focused on building confidence in new environments. Every day, Hamer and his imprinter, Cst. Richard Bushey, explore new places, from homes to airports, automobiles to office buildings. “When a police dog walks into a room, they need to feel like they own it,” said Cst. Richard Bushey. “They need a high level of confidence so that they feel comfortable working in any location.” Part of feeling comfortable comes from having confidence running on many surfaces. For this reason, Cst. Bushey encourages Hamer to walk on a variety of materials at different heights, from slippery ice to gymnasium bleachers. Stairs are one of the most important surfaces to conquer, since most buildings have them. Hamer has learned to ascend and descend many types of stairs, including those made of concrete, metal and wood, both open-faced and closed. After approximately one year in the puppy program, Hamer will be eligible for acceptance into the RCMP police dog training program, where candidates learn technical skills such as tracking, narcotic and explosion detection and criminal apprehension. According to Sgt. Rick Bushey, Division Coordinator for RCMP Police Dog Services (PDS), Hamer is on-track for success. “This is one of the most important periods in Hamer’s development, since it is focused on building confidence,” said Sgt. Bushey. “At this point, he appears to be a self-assured pup and is showing promise as a potential police dog.” Every day this week, we will tweet a link to a new short video of Hamer as he explores a new space. We will continue to post updates on his growth every three to four months. Follow Hamer’s progress on Twitter at @RCMPNS and the hashtag #HamerTime and on Facebook at The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Nova Scotia page.

    Update from retired Nova Scotia RCMP police dog, Arik: I love being retired in the winter! I play outside with my brothers, then go inside to steal dad's spot on the couch! I feel like the king of the castle and sometimes I let my confidence go to my head. For example, last month I stole dad's steak right off of his dinner plate. I now realize that was very rude and I haven't done it again...yet. Life is good!

    #TrafficTuesday – The realities of speeding The simple act of driving over the posted speed limit can have major consequences for both the driver and other road users. When a driver speeds, they have less control over their vehicle and less time to avoid road hazards. Combined with a longer required stopping distance, speeding ultimately increases the likelihood of a collision, as well as the severity of the collision if it occurs. Remember – speeding is never worth the risk. Always give yourself extra travel time and drive according to the posted speed limit. Doing so will not only help you arrive safely at your destination, it will also prevent you from receiving a hefty fine!
