  • Bank card scam in Burnaby

Mounties are warning of the latest bank card scam that has taken in a few people in Burnaby. 

Police say they've had five reports of people getting calls from someone saying their bank or credit card had been compromised. 

The person said they would send someone over to pick it up and an investigation would be launched, then almost immediately someone was knocking on their door. 

Police say one person's card was charged three thousand dollars, while another was charged five thousand and when a third person said they first wanted to confirm with their bank, the thief took off.
