Fraud Prevention

The Little Black Book of Scams

February 11, 2014

Each year too many Canadians feel the devastating impacts of fraud. Criminals target and exploit Canadians of all ages and from all walks life through false or misleading advertising, lottery scams, pyramid schemes and countless other illegal activities. That is why it is essential to be vigilant in recognizing the signs of a scam and report it to authorities immediately. Canadians can help fight fraud and protect themselves by learning about what scams and fraudulent activities look like.

The Canadian edition of The Little Black Book of Scams is a reference guide with information Canadians can use to personally protect themselves. It offers information on how a variety of common scams work and how to recognize them, as well as practical tips on how consumers and businesses can protect themselves.

The Government of Canada through the Competition Bureau and other agencies is taking action to vigorously enforce the laws that fight fraud. I encourage you to read this booklet and to share it with your family and friends.

James Moore
Minister of Industry
