Please be aware of another series of emails seeking money from recipients. 

Some people have received email messages that appear to be from a First Met staff member asking them to buy gift cards or requesting an urgent response. 

Please delete this message if you receive it and do not respond - it is false and is sent from a fake address, which changes from one iteration to another. And block the email address, if you are able.

First Met does not use any address other than and does not ask for money via email or through the purchasing of gift cards. If you have replied inadvertently, please do not respond further. There is no need to feel guilt by ignoring this message - it is not legitimate!

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.
