Chetwynd RCMP would like the public to be aware of scam circulating in the community. Scammers are sending emails, making it look as if it was coming from one of the local First Nations Band.

The email has been received by a few people where the author is asking for a quantity of gift cards each with a monetary value of $100 in an attempt to try to scam council and nation members out of their money. Instructions are then provided what to do after the gift cards are purchased.

While the emails do appear to be legitimate, I can assure you they are not, said Sgt Sgt. Wahnese Antonioni, Chetwynd RCMP Detachment commander. If you have received this communication, do not purchase the cards and immediately report it to the police.

If you have any information about this contact the Chetwynd RCMP at (250) 788-9221.
