RCMP warns that scammers are trying to profit from the virus

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) is reporting that scammers are setting up websites to sell bogus products, and using fake emails, texts, and social media posts as a ruse to take your money and get your personal information.

This information comes in a news release from Cpl. Daniel Michaud
Media Relations Officer Federal Serious and Organized Crime (FSOC).

This can take the form of asking you to donate to victims, offering unproven treatments, or offering protective gear.

See their Fraud Alert warning for more information.
