Protect Your Money

To help protect yourself and your loved ones when doing research about an investment, just remember the three R’s – Recognize, Reject, and Report.

Recognize

Fraudsters are good at what they do. The assurances they make are the lies that they tell. By learning and recognizing these five warning signs, you will be in a better position to reject a fraudulent investment.

Reject

Recognizing warning signs is only one of the steps on the way to protecting yourself. However, you also have to reject those promises and then report people who make them.

Report

Take the time to bring suspicious activity to the attention of the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) by contacting BCSC Inquiries. You can report suspicious activity anonymously through the Report an Investment Scam form. Remember to keep records in case you need to make a complaint or take legal action.
