It may look like SaskPower sent you a text, but the Crown corporation didn’t.
Saskatchewan RCMP and SaskPower are advising the public of an apparent “phishing” scam being delivered via text message.
The message advises people they have received a payment or refund from SaskPower and provides a link where they are asked to provide personal/banking information. (see screen shot).
SaskPower advises they never request banking information via text or other electronic means.
Saskatchewan RCMP reminds the public to never provide personal or financial information in response to any electronic communication advising of a supposed windfall. They advise to provide such information to a trusted source only, in a secure manner.
