I have received a long distance call from 1-800-378-0894 on Friday evening. The man told that he is calling from York Regional Police. That pretty much alerted me.

It happened on the parking lot of grocery supermarket. One tall man of about 40 years old appeared from nowhere and asked for help starting with the phrase:”Can you help me please? I’m not a beggar!”. Then he continued:

– I left my wife and children there.
– I need some gas to put in the car.
