In the wake of Hurricane Fiona, Charlottetown Police Services is warning of a new scam.
We have received some reports of people receiving text messages from a number claiming to be associated to the Hurricane Fiona Relief Fund. The actual text message from the scammer is shown below.
The text message will come from various phone numbers but the message itself remains consistent. Do not click on the link, simply delete the message and block the number. Please share this scam information with friends and family to further reduce the number of potential victims.
The Red Cross, whom is coordinating the Provincial relief fund will not send text messages directing you to apply for or receive funds.
To access any funds in relation to Hurricane Fiona, go directly to the Canadian Red Cross website or the PEI Provincial Website.
