Concerned citizens on alert over latest email scam

There’s a new scam going around according to Agassiz resident Sherry Crouch who received an email titled FED EX INFORMATION HUCLINE AGENT FED EX, stating Crouch had a package waiting for her to pick up.

Crouch was not expecting a package.

She did the pertinent thing and phoned Fed Ex to find out that it was not the reputable company, and was told that it was the latest scam.

“As a senior I’m concerned, you know how seniors are, and I want to get the message out,” she told The Observer.” They are just looking for information, so I want others to be careful.

Anyone else receiving this type of email should delete it.
