Please be aware of another in a series of email scams seeking money from recipients by purchasing gift cards.

Some people have received email messages seeming to come from a First Met staff member asking them to urgently perform a "discreet" task. The message may also say the staff member is in a meeting.

Please delete this message if you receive it and do not respond - it is false and is sent from a fake gmail address. First Met does not use gmail addresses and does not ask for money via email or through purchasing of gift cards If you have replied inadvertently, please do not respond further.

This scam has been used before and we again warn folks to beware. If you think you have been a victim of this scam, please call Victoria police at (250) 995-7654.
