Bogus Prizes/Telemarketing Fraud

Bogus prizes and sweepstakes are still the most frequent telemarketing frauds reported.

Nigerian money offer scams rose to the top ten in 2001. Canada accounts for over 50 percent

of fraudulent prize/sweepstakes companies. Advance fee loan scams are also on the rise -- please

be careful when you pay up front for something -- you may never receive the goods.
