Internet fraud has reached epidemic proportions. 

Policing the internet is a difficult task.  In order to avoid becoming a victim, you must use common sense and caution.  

Fraud artists are experts on preying on their victim's fears, insecurities, naivete and greed. 

If you come across a deal that sounds too good to be true, it might be a fraud. If you receive an email saying you owe money, it might be a fraud. If you get a message on your computer that you will be arrested or fined for your activities, it is a fraud. 

Government agencies, police, courts, Canada Revenue, and banks will never demand payment over the phone or by email. We never threaten arrest for nonpayment. If you suspect a scam, look up the agency phone number and call them for confirmation.  

Educate yourself and vulnerable members of your family by going to the Canadian Anti-Fraud website for more information.
