Our offices are currently operating at a reduced capacity, due to the evolving COVID-19 situation.
If you have been a victim of fraud, please contact your local police. Otherwise, please file your report online through our Fraud Reporting System. We will do our best to respond. Take time to reference our website to learn about the various scams affecting Canadians and be extra vigilant.
We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may cause.

Scams can touch anyone, anywhere, at any time.
If you or a family member have been contacted by a scammer, report it to us — even if you didn't give them any money.
If you or a family member did lose money, please contact your local police as well.
