SaskPower warns of scam

It can seem that half the time your phone rings, there’s another scammer on the other end. On Feb. 25, SaskPower put out a warning regarding yet another scam trying to involve the Crown Corporation.

In an email to media, SaskPower said, “Several customers have advised us that they have received calls from someone claiming to be from SaskPower and asking for access to their homes to sign them up for the Saskatchewan Economic Recovery Rebate. These individuals are not affiliated with SaskPower and are likely collecting information for illegal purposes. A scam in early December 2020 saw individuals making similar claims on customer’s doorsteps.
