Rosthern RCMP are warning the public of a fraud scheme where victims are told to buy pre-paid gift cards for payment. RCMP said they also continue to receive complaints of fraudulent calls from people claiming to be with Canada Revenue Agency and are reminding people not to give out personal information over the phone.
