It’s Crime Prevention Week in Ontario.

To mark the week, Stratford Police are giving out a crime tip of the day to help make sure that you don’t fall victim and become another statistic.

To begin the week, police are raising awareness about not falling prey to the various scams and frauds that target people on a daily basis.

Stratford Police Constable Darren Fischer says the best way to deal with the crimes is to talk about them.

Fischer adds that if you lose money through fraud or scam you should call the police right away.
