Every year, investment fraud artists steal millions of dollars from unsuspecting people. But, you can protect yourself from investment fraud with help from the BC Securities Commission’s InvestRight program.
InvestRight’s free Be Fraud Aware application gives you tools and information to help you avoid investment fraud at home or on the road
Use this app to stay informed with timely investor education and investor protection news, alerts about scams happening in British Columbia, and unbiased information on new investment products or emerging fads.
Learn to spot an investment fraud using the app’s Fraud Finder, assess your personal risk with the Risk Profiler, and test your vulnerability to investment fraud with the Fraud Challenge.
Access the BC Securities Commission’s Investment Caution List, and InvestRight’s Twitter and YouTube channels directly through the app. Check to see if an individual has been sanctioned by a Canadian securities regulator by using the national disciplined persons list.
Finally, use the app’s scam glossary to identify the characteristics of common investment scams.
