On March 31, 2016 Morinville RCMP received a call from a concerned citizen that a male named Michael MALLER of the RBC Fraud Squad 416-444-7245 called asking if they had made a cash advance of $600 against their visa.  The citizen stated that was a fraudulent transaction.  MALLER then directed the citizen to go to Money Mart and send a wire transfer to China in the amount of $900 as the fraud department is located in China only sends back funds in the amount of $1500.   The RCMP are urging the public to never send money over the phone or wire transfers to any company without verifying the validity of the amount or source.  Please report any additional information to the Morinville RCMP.  2016-374213
