Fraud report for February 2015
The pace of fraud emails and posts slowed somewhat in February compared to the previous month. We received 166 emails from lawyers (down from 187) and posted on 9 new fraud attempts (half the posts of January). The could partly be the result of a shortened month.
54% of the emails this month came from the U.S., 45% from Ontario, and only 1% from elsewhere in Canada and overseas.
6 of the 9 posts dealt with commercial debt collection scams, with the remainder being business debt collection and spousal support collection. Click here to read about the various email fraud scenarios.
