The Estevan RCMP is warning the public of a possible scam, after receiving two reports Jan. 17 about someone making phone calls with a number that shows up as 306-637-4400 on call display.
This phone number belongs to the Estevan RCMP detachment and it was not the RCMP calling them.
According to the RCMP’s post on the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network, the caller then tries to convince the person that they need to confirm their Social Insurance Number and that Service Canada needs the information.
The Estevan RCMP is warning the public about this possible scam and reminds the public not to provide any personal information over the phone.
The RCMP cautions people to always be alert to possible scams from out of the blue phone calls, even if the call display shows a number that belongs to a government agency.
