With multiple wildfires continuing to rage in Nova Scotia, the RCMP is asking people to remain vigilant of fraud.

Cpl. Guillaume Tremblay warned that scammers often take advantage of natural disasters to prey on people in vulnerable situations.

“As with any significant incidents, as before with the hurricanes, there could be scams that could be popping up here and there,” said Tremblay.

He reminded everyone to make sure they get their information from trusted sources, and to always be suspicious of strange phone calls.
