Polo Park Shopping Centre is the latest target for scam artists trying to cash on unsuspecting shoppers.

The mall took to Twitter late Monday to inform customers of a scam currently making the rounds.

“Please be advised that we have been made aware of a voice automated service calling citizens in Winnipeg,” the mall’s website read. “The message states that the last purchase our customers made at Polo Park has been selected to win a prize. Please note this is not a contest that Polo Park has implemented, nor do we support this promotion. We have reported this contest to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.”

Those who receive the call can report it directly online or by calling 1-888-495-8501.
