Text Scam Circulating in Yorkton

Yorkton RCMP are warning of a COVID-19 text  scam.
They say victims are getting the message “COV Financial Aid, Undisclosed payment issued successful” to the recipients phone number.
There’s also a link to a spoofed website appearing to be the Canada Emergency Response Benefit homepage.
The message receiver is then asked to provide their SIN number in exchange for the payment.
RCMP say it’s a scam, and warn people not to click on any link, or to reply.
