Maritime Electric is warning its customers not to fall victim to a scam that has surfaced.
Scammers are sending texts to Islanders claiming to be Maritime Electric. The text says there was an error on your monthly statement and that by clicking a link you can get an e-transfer of money owed to you.
It is a scam, DO NOT click the link. If you get such a text, report it to the Canada Anti-Fraud Centre.
