What to watch for in texts or online messages


Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Manitoba RCMP are warning the public of a new cyber scam making the rounds.

RCMP say a quick and easy rule of thumb regarding cyber safety is, if you don't know the name or number of the message sender it may be best not to click on it.

The latest scam includes a text or online message including a link and asking something like "Is this you?" or saying "Check out these photos of you."

RCMP remind residents if you get either of those messages it most likely could be a scam.
