RCMP Warn About E-Transfer Scam!

RCMP in New Brunswick are warning people to be cautious about accepting e-transfers.

It comes after three people were defrauded more than $20,000 in northeastern New Brunswick.

Police says the victims received what appeared to be an e-transfer of money by email.

“By clicking the link to accept the e-transfer, a person unknowingly gives the fraudsters access to the e-transfer recipient’s bank accounts and any credit cards that are linked to the accounts,” said the RCMP in a news release.

“The fraudsters can then withdraw money and use the credit cards for fraudulent purchases.”

Mounties say if you are not aware of who is sending the e-transfer, do not click the link and report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.

If you have clicked the link and believe you have been defrauded, you should report it to your local police.
