Fraudsters Pretending To Be From the Supreme Court of Canada

Recently, many people have been receiving phone calls asking for personal information. The calls are being made from numbers that appear to be from the Supreme Court of Canada.

Among other details, the callers ask for the recipient's Social Insurance Number as well as payment for various things.

These calls are part of a scam.

As the Supreme Court of Canada website explains:
"As a result, we are experiencing a higher call volume and delays may be experienced when calling the Registry."

"Please note that these calls did not originate from this organization and are not legitimate."

"If you have been a victim, we encourage you to report these calls to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre online or toll-free at 1-888-495-8501."
If the Court needs anything from you, you will be served with formal paperwork.

The Court never needs people's Social Insurance Number. And it doesn't ask for money by telephone.
