Charlottetown Police are investigating after an older person fell victim this week to an email spoofing scam.
The victim received an email which appeared to be from Paypal advising them of a payment made to Netflix. It provided a link for the victim to click on to investigate further. Upon clicking the link, the victim was tricked into providing sensitive information.
As a result of providing the information, the victim has been defrauded of approximately $20,000.
