Officers with the Fraud Services Division of the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service would like to advise the public of an increased number of fraudulent emails and text messages being sent to customers.
Officers have received a number of reports from citizens who have advised that they have received text messages and/or emails from a source claiming to be their bank. In each of these cases the messages have turned out to be from a fraudulent source.
Members of the public are reminded to be cautious when providing personal or banking information to anyone. Ensure that you keep strong passwords for online banking and ignore emails or messages from senders that you do not know. If you receive a message that you are not sure about we encourage you to contact your bank personally to ask questions.
