Did you know that each year Canadians lose an estimated $100 million dollars to a variety of frauds and scams? Come and learn how to protect yourself, your identity and your money. Find out about many of the most common frauds that Canadians fall prey to and how guard against these. Learn how to identify a fraud versus a legitimate offer.
