The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre – Fraud Trends

 

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) has created the following three, age specific bulletins to aid the public with increasing awareness & to help protect against fraud.  In February of this year, the CAFC had reported that in just 2019 they received 46,465 reports of personal & business fraud totaling $96,163,328.64 in Canadian losses.  In reality, losses are thought to be much higher as the agency predicts that less than 5% of actual fraud cases are reported to them every year.
