BE AWARE of SCAMS and Frauds –

Find these Government Resources

This is the time of year to be aware of scams and frauds especially as tax time approaches.  Get informed and have a look at some resources from the Government of Canada regarding scams and frauds in Canada.

There are some well known scams, for example, you can receive a call telling you that you owe money to Revenue Canada and that you must provide banking and/or credit card information.  You should know that the Government of Canada and your bank will never ask you for your passwords or any personal information on the phone or by email.  Hang up immediately if this happens.  Contact the authorities to let them know you believe you have been targeted by a scam.  One place you can contact is the Canadian Anti Fraud Centre.

If You Have Been a Victim of a Scam or Fraud

Contact your local police immediately if you have been a victim of a scam or fraud.

There are unscrupulous individuals trying new scams all the time. This is why we must continue to be aware of scams and frauds and be on guard. 

Never give personal Information over the phone

  Be aware of emails with links.  Even if they look like they are from trusted sites, links in emails may not be safe.  They could be trying to  introduce something harmful to your computer.  Once you click on the link you may be allowing a virus to infect your computer.  Always look at the email address as it may show some inconsistencies from what you would expect from the sender.  It is better to be safe than sorry so best not to click on links.

Great Resource from the Canadian Government

Visit the Government of Canada website “SCAMS AND FRAUD CANADA” and view the multitude of current scams.  There is also other valuable information.

The most important thing to remember is to never, ever give any personal information, passwords, addresses, card numbers or even pet and family member names to anyone on the phone.  Even if someone threatens you with police action. This is just part of the scam.  Hang up and contact The Canadian Anti Fraud Centre.  Or contact a trusted family member or friend to help you report the incident.

 

Be Aware and Stay Safe!
