Unauthorized spam sent by government e-mail system
Islanders who received an e-mail titled “Tonight's Winner is Drawn in 10 Hours” should not click on the link it provides and are asked to delete the message.
The provincial government’s e-mail newsletter system was accessed without authorization on Sunday, September 17. As a result, the unauthorized spam message was sent out to roughly 94,000 subscribers.
The e-mail system was taken offline and the incident is being looked into.
