The AER is aware of a phishing scam claiming to be from the Alberta Energy Regulator. The SMS message suggests that the recipient will receive financial compensation from the AER by clicking the provided link.
The AER does not provide rebates or incentives for energy products, nor will the AER contact our stakeholders via text message.
If you receive this message, do not click the link. Do not give out personal, banking, or credit information.
