Total calls for service – Belleville Police responded to 163 calls for service between 5:00 am on February 23, 2024 to 5:00 am on February 26, 2024.


Attempted Fraud

On the 22nd of February, an 87-year-old Belleville resident had set up an appointment with what he believed was a company subsidized by the federal/provincial government offering home efficiency rebates.

A male claiming to be a representative of the company attended the victim’s residence which was in the city’s north end and walked past the victim into the household uninvited. The sales representative then used aggressive sales tactics and at times, refused to leave the household upon request. The victim’s daughter attended the residence and was able to intervene before any documents were signed but it was believed that the suspect was attempting to get the elderly male to enter into a financial contract for a large loan to install a hot water tank, promising government rebates in return.

The suspect was driving a silver KIA with an out of province licence plate. The suspect refused to identify himself or the company he worked for.

It is believed the suspect is involved in a larger fraud scheme focused on targeting and confusing senior citizens via online advertisements, attending their homes and then locking them into large loans with high interest rates. The work promised then either doesn’t get completed or is not installed correctly and the company refuses to return to remedy the issue.

Police are reminding citizens to be vigilant for these fraudulent schemes which often utilize pressure tactics.
