RCMP urge vigilance in preventing residents from being scammed

May 4, 2021 – Alberta RCMP are reminding citizens to be mindful of potential scams trying to separate you from your hard-earned cash.

With reports of numerous scams currently making the rounds around Red Deer, Constable Chantelle Kelly with RCMP K Division says many scammers try to pass themselves off as a charitable organization, for example.

“Someone either comes to the door or you get it through an email or a phone call asking for a donation on behalf of the particular charity,” says Kelly. “Don’t give any personal information or financial information over the phone immediately.
