Fraud Prevention Month

The Tip
This week’s tip is not so much a tip as it is a public information message. Fraud Prevention Month is an annual campaign held in March that aims to prevent Canadians from becoming victims of fraud.

The Detail

The government of Canada provides a website full of resources to help Canadians battle fraud online, door-to-door, and over the phone. Highlights include a variety of anti-fraud promotional materials, a fraud quiz, several videos, the ‘Little Black Book of Scams’ 1st and 2nd editions, and a calendar of events across the country provided by the Consumers Council of Canada.

Scammers are sneaky and sly. They can target anyone, from youngsters to retirees. They can also target businesses. No one is immune to fraud. One group of superheroes has found a way to see through the scams. Their secret is simple: knowledge is power!
