Fraudulent Text Messages About COVID-19 Test Results Making The Rounds In Toronto

Yesterday I noted something on my Twitter feed that was frankly disturbing. It was a series of Tweets from Toronto Public Heath:

Now, here’s some facts so that you don’t fall victim to this scam. (Kudos to a friend of mine who works for Toronto Public Health for this info). Text messages from Toronto Public Health will be from 77000. So if you get a text claiming to be from Toronto Public Health from any other number, it’s likely fake. And if you do get a text like this, don’t share any information at all.

I am not sure what low life scumbag is doing this. But this is unacceptable and I hope that the police hunt them down and throw them into the deepest darkest hole that they can find.
