We have a new record - Canadians lost over $121 million to scammers in 2018. This is up from $95 million in 2017. While the losses continue to trend upwards, the percentage of victims that actually come forward to report the crime is still less than 10%, suggesting that actual losses are somewhere in the range of $3 billion dollars this year.  Reporting scams and frauds plays a vital role in assisting law enforcement and organizations like BBB to gather accurate statistics, as well as track, apprehend and prosecute criminals.
