eHealth warning about vaccine appointment scam

eHealth Saskatchewan is warning residents about a recent text message scam relating to COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

eHealth said that the message is an online vaccination scheduling website, contacting people about a third COVID-19 vaccine appointment, in a news release Friday.

The text message includes a link that may ask you to download software that contains malware.

Malware can put you at risk for identity fraud by exposing banking details and online account credentials.

Anyone who suspects they may have become a victim of cybercrime or fraud should report it to their local police force and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
