OPP anti-rackets and it’s partners need you to know fraud

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Anti-Rackets Branch and its Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) partners are launching their annual Fraud Prevention Month campaign to help prevent Canadians from falling victim to fraud.

During the month of March, the OPP, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, CAFC, Serious Fraud Office, the Competition Bureau of Canada and other partners are joining police services across the country to promote public awareness to help prevent all Canadians from becoming victims of fraud.

This year, the OPP Fraud Prevention Month education campaign will highlight four mass marketing fraud priorities as indicated by the CAFC:

·   Advanced Fee Scam (Money Transfers) 

·   Phishing and Ransom Scam

·   Romance Scam; and,

·    Ecommerce Scam

During the past year, Canadians have fallen victim to fraud’s destructive toll, causing losses totalling approximately $100 million, with Ontario victims losing approximately $45 million. Unfortunately, this only represents approximately five per cent of the fraud victims that report their crimes to police. Regardless of age, gender or location, everyone can take basic steps to better protect themselves from becoming a victim of fraud. Some basic tips include never giving out personal or financial information at the door, over the phone, by e-mail or through social media, or on to unsecured retail or dating websites.
