your guide to protection against fraud.
"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. 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. Our Little Black Book of Scams aims to increase your awareness of the many different kinds of fraud that target Canadians. It provides tips on how to protect yourself and debunks common myths that might allow fraudsters to gain your trust"--Commissioner's message, p. [iv].
