Fraud Prevention Education

The more buyers and sellers are aware of how fraud can happen, the better they can protect themselves, and the easier it is to help prevent fraud. Education and increasing awareness are critical in the fight against fraud.

Visa works closely with government agencies and law enforcement to help educate consumers on how to Recognize, Report and Stop fraud.

Along with government, law enforcement and industry partners, Visa dedicates the month of March to fraud prevention. This public-private collaboration delivers fraud awareness messages to Canadians through a variety of channels.

Visa's fraud education efforts continue beyond Fraud Prevention month and include developing educational material on how consumers can protect themselves against the latest types of fraud, as well as fraud fighting tips.
