How to Protect Yourself
- Never send money or give credit card details, online account details, or copies of personal documents to anyone you don’t know or trust.
- Avoid any arrangement with a stranger that asks for up-front payment via money order, wire transfer, international funds transfer, pre-loaded card or electronic currency. It is virtual impossible to recover money sent this way.
- Do not agree to transfer money for someone else. Money laundering is a criminal offence.
