RCMP warn about scammers at work in Kimberley
Once again, scammers are hard at work in the Kimberley area, particularly the ‘family member in trouble’ scam where you are asked to send money, Kimberley RCMP today warned.
“If anyone contacts you by telephone or through social media, email or text messaging and wants help or money from you – even if you think the person is a close friend or family member – do not send any money or even reply to the message without confirmation that the person speaking is truly your family member as it could be a scam message,” RCMP advised on social media.
“If the person calling tells you not to talk to their family members, it is most likely a scam. Many hackers and scammers will play on your emotions to get money out of you. Don’t fall for it!”
