Ponoka residents warned of scam

Scammers offering fake rebates on water meters.

Scammers appear to be hitting Ponoka.

The town has received a number of calls from residents who have been contacted by a water company offering rebates on water meters.

“The town owns all residential water meters in Ponoka and is not currently offering a rebate program,” says the town.

Residents are advised not to provide any personal information to someone offering water meter rebates.

People should not allow anyone into their homes to inspect the water meter unless they are a town employee with valid identification.

If unsure, phone the town office at 403-783-4431.

Ponoka RCMP have been notified of the scam and are asking anyone who encounters possibly fraudulent activity to phone them at 403-783-4472.
