Scam alert

Yesterday received another telephone call from 250-869-5921 (recorded message indicating I had won a free flight for $900.  With WestJet and to press one to redeem my prize. They also mention in their message a recent flight purchase.

Naturally I hung up and immediately called WestJet 800 number in the phone book who confirmed this was a scam and they are aware of it. The representative indicated these calls have occurred in many parts of Canada..... Etc etc.

I thought it would be timely to give a heads up to the residents in Kelowna of this scam especially given WestJet is a popular airline in our community.

A concerned citizen.
