Emergency/Grandparent Scams

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC), Ontario Provincial Police and Royal Canadian Mounted Police are launching a fraud prevention campaign to raise awareness about the significant increase in emergency scams targeting Canadian seniors.

Emergency scams sometimes called grandparent scams, involve fraudsters contacting seniors or family members claiming that their grandchild or a loved one was in an accident, charged with an offence such as a DUI and drug offences or, in some cases, is ill with COVID-19.
