Canadians targeted by scams taking advantage of COVID-19 fears



Global is reporting that "Canadians should be vigilant for text scams amid the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday. "There appears to be a text scam going around on the new emergency response benefit. Some Canadians have reported receiving texts that read: "Alert: The emergency response benefit of Canada relief fund has sent you a deposit of $1375.50." The text then asks them to click on a link and give personal information to claim the money." That is nasty. Buyer Beware. This whole response is a scam.
