Online Fraud is More Prevalent Than You Think: Here's How to Protect Yourself

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

According to recent data from Stats Canada, there are 78,000 incidents of fraud in Canada every year year.

In celebration of March, which is Fraud Protection Month, and to demonstrate the difference between in-person and online fraud, Capital One took to the streets and made this amusing video. Funny as it may be, though, there is a serious message behind it: while you may not fall for an obvious fraud scam in person, those same scams seem to work quite often online.

 

 

Capital One offers tips on how to protect yourself from fraud both in person and online, as well as how to spot phishing emails. You can also join the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #fraudmonth.

You can also take this online quiz to test your fraud knowledge from the Canadian government.
