Innisfail RCMP are investigating multiple frauds occurring at various businesses.

Police say the suspects are using people’s credit card and banking information and uploading the information to fake credit cards. They then complete the transaction manually, where they enter the full credit card number and expiry date on the pin pad. They say their chip doesn’t work.

If they are asked for ID, the suspects give out an interim driver’s licence belonging to someone else or they give fake ID.

Police say these culprits are described as Asian or aboriginal, between 20 and 30 years old.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Innisfail RCMP at 403-227-3342.
