SaskPower alerting customers of fraudulent texts, emails

SaskPower is warning customers of a series of fraudulent text messages and emails that have been sent to residents in recent days.

The Crown corporation says the messages claim funds must be sent due to overbilling and they could contain links leading to websites requesting financial or personal information. The company warns that giving scammers this information may lead to theft of money or identity.
