There was a recent article in the Ottawa Citizen about scam texts being sent to mobile phone users asking for money. It’s a reminder to always be vigilant.
The OPP said everyone should be suspicious of text messages requesting financial or private information. Fraudulent activity should be reported to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre through its website antifraudcentre.ca or by calling 1-888-495-8501. People who have been victims of scams or cybercrimes should report them to the police.
