3. Lottery Fraud
You cannot win a lottery in which you have not participated. You will be asked to pay an administration fee or tax before you can collect your winnings.
4. Social Media Fraud
The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has reported that there have been a number of Facebook pages claiming to be linked and connected to the government of Canada, with the promise of successful immigration to Canada. The IRCC said that most of these sites are mainly in Arabic and they “illegally use official trademarks and images of the Government of Canada to appear as if they are associated with Canada when they are not”.
