You may receive emails, text messages or phone calls that look like they are from someone you know and trust. We have had a few of those happen at Special Olympics Ontario. Scammers do a really go job of making their messages look real.
These messages may ask you to click on a link or share personal information. Instead of doing what the message says, take a second to reach out to the sender by giving them a call or sending them a new email (don’t respond to the email).
If you’re unsure, always ask someone you know and trust before you respond.
