Renfrew Hydro are not installing furnaces in town.
That’s the message from Renfrew OPP Constable Tina Hunt about a new fraud going around Renfrew.
She says the scammer will call on behalf of Renfrew Hydro wanting to set up an appointment about installing a new furnace.
The OPP has contacted Renfrew Hydro and the power company said that they are not installing new furnaces in Renfrew and are not associated with the persons making these calls.
She says that multiple home owners have already met with the scammers and advises residents to contact the police if they are a victim of this. Hunt also suggests that residents never give any personal information over the phone, email or in person unless they’re sure of who they’re talking to.
