Alberta Health Services is warning Albertans about a new text scam. Some Albertans have been receiving text messages that links to what looks like an e-transfer site. Once you open the link, the site asks you to input your bank information. Alberta Health Services would like to clarify that it would never send text messages, and would never request for money through e-transfer. If you receive such a text message, do not open the link.
