Parents out there: Does your kid play any online games? There is a rising online trend of sextortion going on in the gaming community. Fortnight is one of those games where online predators try and entice players to increase their game level in exchange for nude photos/compromising videos. Heads up. Please be aware of where your kid is hanging out online.

There's also been a few scams making the rounds. Most companies do NOT have a credit for you requiring you to provide banking information. They certainly won`t tell you that by text either, it will be on your bill. DO NOT EVER provide your banking information to people online after clicking a link provided to you. The only exception to that is NEVER. Please, don`t trust text messages and emails when they say you are owing or entitled money if you cannot confirm this by an actual invoice indicating a credit or debt. The one time this is acceptable and safe is NEVER! Yes, that`s in all capital letters and yes, I`m yelling. These scams continue because people are too trusting. Good people getting ripped off makes me yell. This is a direct quote from Sgt. Fefchak of Moosomin, many of you will remember him from his Killarney days and will truly appreciate his humor!!

If you have any information about these crimes or any other crimes, please contact the RCMP Office or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
