Health and Medical, Small Business, and Employment Scams [Video]

fraud2March is Fraud Prevention Month in Canada, led by the Competition Bureau of Canada and supported by 125 law enforcement agencies, private companies, and public sector organizations. Awareness about fraud helps us all to recognize it when we see it, reject it, and report it.

At The Benefits Trust, we strongly believe in scam awareness and prevention, so business owners and consumers alike can protect themselves from fraud. Most Canadians have been or will be fraud targets – which means all Canadians should be informed about fraud so they can stop it when they see it.

2016 is the 12th anniversary of Canada’s annual fraud awareness month. This year, the Competition Bureau has provided some great informative videos about the most common scams.

We’re sharing the videos on health and medical scams, small business scams, and employment scams to help spread the word.
