The Saskatchewan RCMP say to be wary of suspicious emails, after Mounties in La Ronge received a report of a scam impersonating RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki.

An email was sent out saying the recipient was "sanctioned by a complaint." It had a letter attached, citing sexual offences involving children.

"We are notifying the public of the existence of this scam and confirming it is NOT legitimate," said the RCMP release.

"If you receive a scam with the attached information, delete it immediately. Do not reply. Always check the legitimacy of the sender or sending address before opening or responding to/acting on correspondence received. You’ll notice in the ‘From’ it has “RCMP” incorrect."

Here are screenshots of the email and the attached letter from the RCMP.
