This month marks the 14th annual Fraud Prevention Month, which is an education and awareness campaign to help you recognize, reject and report fraud.
The Competition Bureau, a branch of the Federal Government, says the old saying is true; knowledge is power.
Avoiding fraud is all about knowing how to recognize the signs, reject the claims that seem too good to be true and reporting them to the authorities.
This year, the Competition Bureau has launched the second edition of the Little Black Book of Scams, a guide that exposes 12 of the most prevalent scams in Canada and features their six fraud fighting superheroes.
Consumers and businesses play a crucial role in the fight against fraud. By recognizing scams and reporting them you can protect yourself and assist the Bureau in stopping fraud.
More information on fraud prevention can be found on the Competition Bureau’s website.
