Have you gotten a suspicious text recently in Mississauga or Brampton?
It’s been reported that some residents are getting a text message claiming to be from Costco and offering an annual cashback reward if the user visits a suspicious link.
“There is currently a text scam circulating that asks members to click on a link to claim their Capital One Costco Mastercard Cash Back reward. The text is a SCAM,” Costco said.
“Do not answer the text or click on the link as it is not from Costco or Capital One.”
Another circulating text scam asks members to click on a link to claim their 2% Executive Member reward. Costco says this reward is mailed directly to members, not provided via text.
Residents who receive one of these scams are advised to:
- Never respond to emails that cannot be verified.
