Police received a report from an individual advising that they received a call from someone claiming to work for the Government of Canada.  The caller was told that there was a warrant for his arrest and was instructed to make a payment using a Bitcoin machine.  The caller made a large payment through a Bitcoin machine before speaking to the police and realizing this was a scam.  For more information on how to protect yourself from these types of scams please check out the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website:
