  1. Dec. 7, 2022Protect yourself from scams

    Phone, text message, and web-based scams are on the rise in Canada

    Fraudsters invent new schemes and strategies daily. It is vital that students learn how to identify illegitimate claims to protect themselves. 

    A recent scam involves thieves using automated phone messages in Mandarin to impersonate Chinese officials. These calls claim the recipient is linked to crimes in China. Using high-pressure techniques, fraudsters share false threats against the victim’s family, instruct them to move to a second location, demand large sums of cash, etc.
