All propertyHoodieToque



Innisfil, ON – The North and South Beaches of Innisfil Beach Park (Beaches 1 through 5) are under a swimming advisory from the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.

An advisory is a warning to swimmers, but it is not a beach closure. During an advisory, a beach is posted with warning signs when the water contains levels of bacteria that indicate there may be an increased risk of developing minor skin, eye, ear, nose and throat infections and stomach disorders. People may still choose to swim during an advisory but it may be best to avoid swallowing the water, and ducking or dunking their heads underwater.

Testing is done at least weekly by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, and the results are listed on their website. To access the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit beach advisories and notices visit www.innisfil.ca or www.smdhu.org (http://www.simcoemuskokahealth.org/Topics/SafeWater/beachwater/postingsclosures.aspx).

Internet Fraud

(Innisfil, ON) Another local resident has become the victim of internet fraud. On Wednesday, August 12, 2015, an elderly woman came to the North Division to report that she had been scammed online. She told the investigator that she had begun an online relationship with a man through a popular dating website. He gained her trust, then had her send money to him through Western Union. After she sent the cash, the suspect told the victim that immigration authorities needed more money to pay off corrupt officials so he could leave Africa and visit her in Canada. She then received a phone call from a second man, claiming to be a friend of the suspect. He said he was instructed to give her money, which arrived in the form of a cheque, drawn on a Georgetown business. She put the cheque in her account, and a third suspect called her to instruct her to transfer the money to a Japanese bank. It was at this point that the victim realized she'd been scammed and contacted police. To date, the victim is out almost $6000.

Internet fraudsters prey on the elderly and vulnerable. Never send money to anyone you have never met. Wire transfers, corrupt officials, and large cheques, usually for more than you are owed, are clues that you are being scammed. Educate yourself about fraud, go to the Canadian AntiFraud Centre's website for more information.
