Tips to Avoid Scams

Here are some helpful tips that may be useful for anyone:

Never provide personal information or transfer money (or bitcoin) because of a phone or text message. Various scams are continuously introduced around the world, often involving a fake “you need to pay tax” or “there is a lawsuit against you” or “there is an issue with your visa or your SIN”. Typically, the caller demands immediate payment, most often via email transfer, wire transfer, gift card or pre-paid credit card. Scammers often pretend they are representing an official agency such as ‘Immigration Canada’ or ‘Canada Tax Revenue Agency’. Such agencies would never contact individuals in this way.
