The Importance of Reporting Fraud


In fact, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre estimates that as many as 95% of all fraud crimes go unreported.

So this makes the job of investigating and gathering evidence even more challenging for

law enforcement agencies, like the Bureau.

Reports of fraud are vital to our efforts to bring scammers to justice.

By reporting a scam, you can provide law enforcement with the important tools they need to stop fraudsters.

We encourage business owners to report your experience to us even if you were able to

reject an attempted fraud like a phishing email or an advertising scam.

We take all scams complaints seriously.

You can file a complaint with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, the Competition Bureau or the Better Business Bureau.

Reporting also helps us warn the public and prevent others from becoming victims.
