There currently is a telephone scam being conducted in Canada to obtain credit card numbers and other personal information from the general public.
The most common approach is for an individual to receive a phone call, sometimes computer-generated, advising him or her that they have won a trip, vacation or other sort of prize from Canadian Tire. The individual is then asked to provide a credit card number and/or personal information. THIS IS A SCAM. Canadian Tire does not make unsolicited calls to ask for credit card numbers.
These incidents should be reported to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. To reach them or learn more:
