We have been alerted that fraudulent texts claiming to be from the TRAB (Temporary Rental Assistance Benefit) are being sent to phone numbers in Alberta. Do not click the link in the text, it is not official communication concerning the TRAB program.
If you are receiving the Temporary Rental Assistance Benefit you will never be asked to deposit the benefit by text. The texts appear to be coming from Vancouver area codes. A screenshot of one of the texts has been included below.
