    > The City of Saskatoon says it transferred $1.04 million to an account associated with a fake construction company in an online fraud scheme.

    > At an "Urgent media conference" called Thursday afternoon, city manager Jeff Jorgenson said the city is focused on recovering the defrauded funds.

    > According to the city, a fraudster impersonated the chief financial officer of a construction company and requested a change of banking information and the city complied.
