As of May 1, befraudaware.ca, BCSC InvestRight’s previous fraud awareness site, is no longer active.
All Be Fraud Aware investment fraud resources are now located under the Fraud Awareness tab on InvestRight.org. You can access this section from anywhere on the site.
We moved the Be Fraud Aware content to InvestRight to help visitors find fraud awareness content while browsing other investor tools and information.
Where Did the Be Fraud Aware Tools and Features Go?
We know befraudaware.ca had several popular features. Below is a list of links where you can find tools to spot, report, and stay away from investment scams on InvestRight.org.
- Report a Concern online form
- Investment Fraud Warning Signs

Chinese and Punjabi Language Content
We have also integrated the Chinese and Punjabi Be Fraud Aware content into InvestRight. These versions of InvestRight are accessible through the links in the bottom footer menu or the language toggle in the top right hand corner of the site.
Please note that this site is not multilingual. Instead, investors are able to access the previous Chinese and Punjabi versions of befraudaware.ca through InvestRight.org.
