You’ve probably heard the warnings by now (maybe you heard it in our Information Updates), about people falling victim to scams that start with a simple text message. Locals are receiving texts advertising ways to make easy money, such as wrapping their cars in advertisements or becoming a mystery shopper. Those who respond have had money stolen from them during the process.
Just in case you didn’t believe me, I’ve received both of these texts over the past few days and the News Reporter in me decided to screenshot them as proof.
The OPP want to remind everyone to ignore these messages (I often block the number when I receive them), as they are attempting to scam you.
