The scam reportedly informs SaskTel customers they have been over-billed through a text message and then directs the customer to click on a link to confirm their fake refund.
In other cases, the customer is taken through the steps of sending money to complete the fraudulent process.
Economic crime unit investigators are warning the public to never send money to any unverified source.
People are also reminded not to click on any suspicious links. Instead, delete the message and contact the service provider.
