March is Fraud Prevention Month. The philosophy is for Canadians to recognize, reject and report Fraud, and reduce Fraud by increasing fraud awareness. Fraud Prevention Month is spearheaded by the Competition Bureau of Canada. #fraudchat is running a four-week series during Fraud Prevention Month with our special guest Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.

Week 1: Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Tax Scams

On Thursday, March 8, 2018, at 8 p.m., we will be joined by our special guests at the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre to answer questions regarding tax scams. Members of the public can follow The Canada Revenue Agency and the Canadian Anti- Fraud Centre using the hashtags @canantifraud and @CanRevAgency on Twitter.

To follow #fraudchat, members of the public simply need to log on to Twitter from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST and follow the #fraudchat hashtag. An application such as Tweetdeck, which allows users to separately view tweets containing this hashtag, is also helpful in following the chat.

#fraudchat is an online Twitter program that seeks to educate and exchange ideas with the public about financial crimes and fraud. The moderators for this program are Gail Regan (@ReganFCU), and Diane Kelly (@DKellyFCU) of TPS Financial Crimes, along with Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (@Canantifraud).
