It has been brought to our attention that a promotional letter wrongfully associated with Interac has been circulating. Please be advised that this letter is not from Interac. Do not act on this letter as it is mail fraud.
Mail fraud is a type of scam perpetrated when fraudsters masquerade as a legitimate person or business. They send out letters for the purpose of taking advantage of people either financially, or for the purpose of acquiring personal and/or financial information that is later used to commit fraud.
One common example of this type of fraud involves a fraudster sending out letters notifying bank cardholders that they have won a large cash prize as part of a computer rewards program. A seemingly legitimate cheque is enclosed along with instructions to use the cheque to pay clearance fees on the prize. Unfortunately, the cheque does not clear, and the recipient is then out of pocket for the money they sent to process their “prize”.
Congratulations to Patrick McNamara! Patrick won a Movie Night Out courtesy of The Personal Home and Auto Insurance. Patrick’s name was entered into a draw when he filled out a ballot for a free quote at TEUCUs most recent onsite at Toronto Hydro’s Belfield and Monogram locations.
