The City of Regina is warning about an email scam involving someone pretending to be from the city's tax department.

Some people have received an email that claims to be from someone named Rhonda Begley of Regina's property tax department.

However, there is no one named Rhonda Begley working at City Hall.

The email asks recipients to download some files, something the city says they shouldn't do.

The city didn't say if anybody had lost money as a result of the deception. 

Anyone receiving the email is asked to contact the Canadian Anti Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
