Fraud: Recognize it. Report it. Stop it.

Fraud concerns all Canadians. It threatens our families, our businesses, our bank accounts and can cause tremendous stress and personal turmoil. It also threatens our national economy and strengthens organized crime groups. The impact on individuals, families and businesses can be devastating: retirement savings, homes, businesses, and in some cases, lives, have been lost. While fraud losses are serious, the good news is that the majority can be prevented by identifying the methods used by fraudsters.

Through out the month of March the RCMP will be posting a new tip on their website every day that will help reduce your chances of being victimized by fraud. Topics covered will include identity theft, phishing, online shopping, social networking and credit and debit cared fraud.

The RCMP encourages everyone to be careful and to be alert to possible fraudulent activity.
