COVID19-Specific Frauds and Scams

Here is a list of the top  scams and frauds currently being used to prey on vulnerable seniors during the COVID19 crisis

  • Emails, phone calls and text messages encouraging seniors to apply forCOVID-related government benefits.
  • A version of the CRA scam where fraudsters threaten that your ? provincial medical benefits?have run out (or are running out) and you need to send money either to reinstate them or to buy private medical insurance. A phone call from someone posing as a representative from the provincial or municipal health authority saying that you have been found to have COVID – or you have been found to have been exposed to COVID – and to give them your credit card to pay for testing or results.
  • Canada Post / UPS – delivery frauds – a telephone call saying that you have an (often international) package which has been attempted to be delivered, but you need to call them to pay duty or shipping first.
  • Government Focused Bank & Insurance Focused  :

Fake ? financial planners? calling seniors about opportunities to get their investment portfolios back up due to COVID19 losses. Fake bank messages asking for your SIN number and banking information so that they can set up a direct deposit for government funds due to COVID.
