The Internet has given criminals a whole new set of tools to commit fraud. With tax season in progress, it is important to remain vigilant so that you do not fall victim

 

Crime Prevention Ottawa (CPO) has prepared an article with tips and advice from Staff Sergeant Stephanie Burns with the Ottawa Police Service. You can review the article in its entirety here.

 

Tips include being cautious of emails from people claiming to be with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), support family and friends who are at risk of fraud attempts, and exercising caution when posed with suspicious communications. I highly encourage all residents to take a moment to review these tips and share them with those they know.

 

This is just one of a series of bilingual articles prepared by CPO that can be included in your corporate communications. It is CPO’s goal to help you share the information that will help everyone stay safe and build safer neighbourhoods.
