- Phone and fax
A scammer, pretending to be from a business, government agency, a bank, or utility company, urgently asks you to verify your personal information. They may request information such as:
- Your name
- Your address
- Your birth date
- Your account information
- Your Social Insurance Number (SIN)
Once you provide this information, the scammer may use it for identity fraud.
Never provide personal information over the phone, online or through email in response to an unsolicited request.
