Winnipeg police are once again warning about Bitcoin scams.
Investigators say a large number of Manitobans have fallen victim to various scams that involve sending Bitcoin through ATMs.
They say you should never send money, pay bills or even use a Bitcoin ATM unless you are familiar with what Bitcoin is.
Typically, these scams involve someone calling you and pretending to be a bill collector or a representative from the Canadian Revenue Agency.
Officers say scammers will say you owe money and ask for payment through a Bitcoin ATM, which are available at many stores around the city.
The CRA says they never ask for and do not accept Bitcoin as payment.
