Resident warns of internet Telus scam

Barriere area senior is warning others who use the internet to be cautious of emails from scammers

An area senior is warning others who use the internet to be cautious of emails from scammers who say they are contacting the recipient on behalf of TELUS.

This individual says she received such an email that led her to believe her Telus account needed immediate attention.

Fortunately she was savvy enough to realize that there was a strong possibility this was a scam, and immediately contacted Telus directly, who told her “under no circumstances give these people any money”.

The senior also notified the RCMP, and says this sort of scam can take in anyone if they are not aware that situations like this exist.

“Please everyone, be aware,” said the lady.
