Potential Scam in Downtown Oakville 

Dear BIA members,

It has been brought to our attention that there has been an incident in downtown Oakville involving scamming. This instance occurred with an individual attempting to purchase an item with a $100 bill and then changing their mind at the cash while the exchange of bills was happening. 

Please be cautious when customers are paying for small items with larger bills and remind your staff about any policies you may have in place regarding accepting large bills. 

If this has happened at your business please contact the non emergency police. You can contact them at (905) 825-4747 Ext. 5155. 

If you have any further comments and/or questions you can contact me at the BIA office.
