Identity Theft

Identity theft occurs when someone steals your personal information to commit a crime.  While you can’t entirely control whether you will become a victim there are ways to minimize the risk. 

Please visit The Canadian Anti-fraud Call Center (PhoneBusters) for more information.

Believe it or not there is no typical fraud victim in Canada, but research finds that fraud victims are likely to be educated, informed relatively affluent and involved in their communities. 

Thousands of Canadians are defrauded each year.  Scam artists are up to date and well-organized.
