The Regina Police Service is warning the public of an email scam currently circulating in the province.
The email letter claims to come from a representative of the Saskatchewan Police Commission and contains logos of several of the province’s municipal police agencies and the title “Summons to Appear”.
The sender informs the recipient they are the subject of legal proceedings related to sexual offences, including offences involving minors. The email asks the recipient to respond to the email and notes that the recipient will be arrested by local police.
The emails are being sent from the following address: [email protected] . An image of the emailed letter accompanies this release.
Members of the Regina Police Service Cyber Crime Unit are currently investigating this email scam.
We would like to remind the public to never open emails from an unknown sender, always double check the email address and contact your local police if you feel you are the victim of a scam.
