Saskatchewan RCMP and SaskPower are advising the public of an apparent "phishing" scam being delivered via text message.
The message advises people that they have received a payment or refund from SaskPower and provides a link where they are asked to provide personal/banking information. (see attached screen shot).
SaskPower advises that they never request banking information via text or other electronic means.
Saskatchewan RCMP wants to remind the public never to provide personal or financial information in response to any electronic communication advising of a supposed windfall. Always ensure you only provide such information to a trusted source in a secure manner.
