Fraud Prevention Month - Protect Yourself from Being Scammed

March is Fraud Prevention Month, and we want to remind our students to be aware of common and emerging scams. In some scams, the caller pretends to be the police or an immigration officer. The police and the IRCC will never ask you to pay money in the form of money transfers, BitCoin, prepaid credit cards, or gift cards. If you receive a suspicious call, hang up immediately and do not provide your personal information.
