BCSC InvestRight’s Be Fraud Aware app for iOS and Android is unavailable as of June 1, 2017.

We decided to decommission the app after launching our new investor education website, InvestRight.org. Unlike the previous version of the site, InvestRight.org is built for tablets and other mobile devices.

If you have the app on your phone or tablet, please delete it.

Investors who relied on the Be Fraud Aware app can browse InvestRight.org or contact [email protected] for more information. If you’re looking for the CSA’s National Registration Search to find out if an investment advisor or firm is registered, visit aretheyregistered.ca.

If you have any concerns about a person or company offering an investment opportunity, please contact BCSC Inquiries at 604-899-6854 or 1-800-373-6393, or through e-mail at [email protected]. You can also file a complaint or submit a tip anonymously using BCSC’s online complaint form.

InvestRight.org is the British Columbia Securities Commission’s investor education website.
