Medicine Hat Police are warning Hatter’s about another phone scam making the rounds.

A caller says he is a police officer or Revenue agent and says your S.I.N. number is compromised.

Money is demanded from the victim in bitcoin, gift cards or other non-traceable forms.

The MHPS says at least 5 local victims have been scammed out of more than $20,000 in the latest fraud.

If you get a call like this you’re advised to hang up and contact police if you’re unsure about how to proceed.
