A Warning Has Been Issued About a Scam With Threats to Personal Safety

Saskatchewan RCMP is advising the public of a text message scam that has been recently reported within their jurisdiction.

 

In each report, the complainant received a text message from a sender claiming to be from an escort company accusing the victim of having used their services without paying. The sender then demands payment and advises the victim that if they do not pay their personal safety or that of their family or friends will be in danger. These text messages have also been accompanied by graphic images of violent scenarios including assaults and homicides.

 

The Saskatchewan RCMP would like to remind you to remain vigilant when receiving unsolicited text messages, never provide personal or sensitive information to the requestor and never send money even if the message sounds urgent.

 

If you or a family member has been contacted by a scammer report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre even if you didn't give them any money.  If you or a family member did lose money as a result of fraud contact your local police as well as the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
