Saskatchewan RCMP and Livestock Services of Saskatchewan have issued a warning to livestock producers to keep an eye on their hay.

RCMP in the province are investigating a series of complaints after several livestock producers became victims of fraud while attempting to purchase hay.

Ads were posted on social media and other buy and sell platforms by individuals who scammed producers out of their money by requesting payment prior to the buyer seeing the hay or taking delivery. Several producers have been caught in the scam and had sent money to the seller, to find out that they did not have the hay.

The RCMP are advising producers not to send any money until the hay is confirmed and delivery has been established.

Livestock producers are also being encouraged to move hay bales back to their yards, after Ponteix RCMP are investigating the theft of 12 round bales from south of Hazenmore, Sask., between July 14 and 30.
