Phony Health Inspector Scam

LETHBRIDGE:    Incidents involving phony health inspectors surfaced around the province last year and the scheme has now hit locally.

Last Friday, a city fast food restaurant was contacted by a man claiming to work for the "health board".  He said health inspectors would be on-site the next day and he wanted information from the business. Staff members were suspcious and hung up on the caller, who never called back.  In similar incidents elsewhere last year,  businesses were threatened with fines for not co-operating.

Regional Police remind restaurant owners that Health Inspectors don't schedule inspections in advance and don't issue fines for failing to set up an inspection. It's important to always verify the credentials.  Anyone claiming to be a Public Health Inspector in this province will carry an Alberta Health Services photo ID.
