RCMP warns of scammers identifying as police officers via email


The RCMP is warning the public about a type of scam currently in circulation where the scammer is representing themselves as a police officer via email and is claiming to have a subpoena for the person they are contacting.


Police received a report from a victim who received an email from someone representing themselves as a police officer from an email address ending in ‘@rcmp-grc.gc.outlook.(com)’.


The person claimed to have a subpoena for the victim.


The RCMP does not issue subpoenas via email. The RCMP also does not have an ‘outlook.com’ email address. Scam emails may contain links that are troublesome to the user if activated.


If you receive an email such as this or any email that you think may be a scam, do not open it, click links, or respond to the email.
