Elk Valley RCMP warning public to look out for text scams

Elk Valley RCMP says reports of attempted scam text messages have been coming in.

Police officials said residents should be vigilant and think twice before opening a link received via text or email.

In a post on Facebook, Elk Valley RCMP shared an example of a scam text that says the following:

“Canada Post: Your package could not be delivered. To schedule a new delivery , see [link] . Data rates may apply.” [sic]

If you are suspicious about any messages you receive, Elk Valley RCMP officials said you should contact the shipping company directly instead of opening an unsolicited link.
