The Competition Bureau works to protect all Canadians by cracking down on deceptive marketers and ensuring consumers have the information they need to make informed purchasing decisions.
Fake lotteries, Internet frauds, get‑rich‑quick schemes and miracle health cures are some of the favoured means of separating the unwary from their money. The Competition Bureau has seen the devastating effects scams can have on people and their families.
This booklet in its printed, online and video editions is an important step in that direction. Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Fraud is a crime that threatens every Canadian, regardless of their education, age or income.
Scammers use a variety of devious tactics to defraud unsuspecting victims, such as imitating well‑known brands online and using deceptive claims to entice consumers through telemarketing, emails or social media.
One of the best ways to combat this kind of fraud is to take measures to prevent yourself from being caught in the first place.
If you want to stay on top of scams, inform yourself on how to recognize the various types of scams and protect your personal information by visiting law enforcement organizations' websites, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre or other reputable organizations.
In Canada, it is a crime to promote a pyramid scheme or even to participate in one.
Ponzi schemes are fraudulent investment operations that work in a similar way to pyramid schemes. Be very careful when someone offers you money to help transfer their funds.
Fraudsters are becoming more sophisticated in their methods, but so are consumers.
You can make a difference not only in your own life, but in the lives of the people you care about by recognizing, rejecting and reporting fraud.
Although pyramid schemes are often cleverly disguised, they make money by recruiting people rather than by selling a legitimate product or providing a service.
Pyramid schemes inevitably collapse and you will lose your money.
The scammers make their money by making you pay fees or taxes, call their premium rate phone numbers or send premium text messages to claim your prize. Don’t give away your banking information or any other personal information — EVER. In a typical pyramid scheme, unsuspecting investors are encouraged to pay large membership fees to participate in moneymaking ventures.
