Once you can identify the types of fraud, and how to recognize it, reporting fraud is the next step in helping to eradicate these crimes. Here are a few resources to keep in mind:
- To report an insurance crime, scam, fraud or cybercrime, please contact your local police as soon as possible.
- It is also recommended that you report the instance of a scam, fraud or cybercrime, whether you are a victim or not, to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC).
- To provide tip information on any insurance related crime, contact Équité Association at 1-877-422-TIPS (English) OR 1-866-422-4331 (service en français) or submit the tip using our online form.
- To provide anonymous tip information about any type of crime, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or via their online form.
- The Competition Bureau accepts reports of misleading or deceptive marketing practices, such as ghost brokers through their online complaint form.
Fighting fraud takes a community and you can make a difference. Your information about suspicious activity can help law enforcement bring criminals to justice and help keep everyone safe.
