Know Your Fraud

Know Your Fraud

There are five main types of fraud/scams. Do you know them? They include:

  1. Identity Theft. They steal your identity so they can steal your money.
  2. Internet Fraud and Scams. You could be downloading viruses that hijack your personal information, donating to a
    fake charity providing a safe home for scam artists in your email inbox.
  3. Consumer Scams. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Con artists come to your door, telephone, mail
    and internet.
  4. Investment Scams. The most high-profile scams when they go belly up, beware of the pyramid/Ponzie scheme. A
    good financial advisor will work with you to answer questions and ensure you have no doubts before investing your money.
  5. Employment Scams. Canada’s newest citizens and job seekers can be victims of employment scams when they apply for
    jobs that don’t exist – sharing too much personal information.
