Business owners being warned of attempted extortions


2023-11-23 16:49 PST

Surrey RCMP has become aware of extortions targeting business owners throughout the Lower Mainland and is encouraging anyone who may be a victim to call police.

If you are a business owner in Surrey and have received any threats either directly or indirectly, we strongly encourage you to call Surrey RCMP, says Surrey RCMP Media Relation Officer Corporal Sarbjit Sangha. It has come to our attention that some potential victims have spoken with local media and have not made police reports. In order for police to investigate these incidents, they must be reported.

Surrey RCMP is actively liaising with partner agencies throughout the Lower Mainland.

If you are targeted in an extortion attempt, do not engage with the suspect and do not send any money, instead contact police immediately.

Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
