The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George is warning residents about an ongoing telephone scam that mimics the Regional District’s phone number.

RDFFG says they would never ask for a social insurance number or credit card number by telephone, and anyone claiming to be from the district that asks for such information is likely a scammer.

Anyone that receives a call like this is being asked to ignore it and hang up.

Residents can also report the incident to the Canadian Anti Fraud Centre.

To check if a call from the Regional District is legitimate, contact the district’s main number at 250 960 4400.
