It’s still March! Which means it’s still Fraud Prevention Month here in Canada. I recently saw a report by Global News that talked about the top ten scams to watch out for this month. Scams can come in all sorts of forms, so be on the look out to make sure you don’t become a victim this year. Equifax Canada suggests fraud accounts for 54 per cent of all cybercrimes reported to police, citing Statistics Canada data. Plus, Equifax reports that fraud-related crime costs Canada between $15-billion and $30-billion annually.
The following ten scams are believed to be the most pervasive of them all over the last year, according to the Better Business Bureau (BBB). So be sure to keep a close eye on these scams in particular.
