A new take on a old scam is now circulating in Langley.
A woman is contacting daycares in the Langley area, looking for childcare, pretending to be a Canadian living in Mexico, who has two children, and will be returning to Canada shortly.
She will send a cheque to cover the first month, but it will be for more than the amount requested, and she will ask for the remainder back.
The cheque, of course, is bogus, and the person who cashes it will be out the amount returned.
All daycares and preschools should be warned that this scam is currently happening and to be aware.
Name Withheld, Langley
