Potential Facebook Messenger Scam - March 09, 2023



The WCB of PEI has been made aware of a possible scam on Facebook Messenger with individuals pretending to be from the WCB and targeting Islanders.


According to the reports, the message promises prize money for clicking a link which is a phishing attempt by scammers.


The WCB of PEI does not have a Facebook Messenger account and is not operating any promotional activity of that nature.


Should you come across any suspicious activity such as this, please report it to us by contacting us by email at or by phone at 1-800-237-5049 (toll-free in Atlantic Canada).


The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website contains up-to-date information on recent scams and known fraud attempts. You can access their website here:
