Fraud Alert

Kingston Police are currently receiving complaints of an active phishing scam from fraudsters pretending to be associated with COSTCO.


Complainants are receiving text messages that indicate an annual rebate is ready to be deposited and requests they select their bank from a list. The complainant is redirected to what appears to be a valid bank website, which requests name, account information, password, etc. in order to receive the rebate.


Please do not click on any links in emails or text message from unknown or un-anticipated contact. If you have any doubt, look up direct contact information for the business to confirm the validity of the message.
