Covid-19 scams

Dear Heritage Members, Friends and Partners,

We’re writing to you to pass on information that has been circulating in French, but that may not have yet reached people in our community in English about some Covid-19 scams that are going around. For more information please consult the website of the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre:

As you may know, government instances do not generally contact citizens to offer them direct financial aide. Applications for aid programs should be made only on a secured government website or by contacting official government agencies oneself. Please be wary of any emails, calls or text messages claiming that they come from charitable organisations, the public health department or another government agency and asking for your credit card number, social security number or any other personal information.

If you or anyone you know requires help to access programs or services in English, please do not hesitate to contact a Heritage staff member. We’re still available at a distance to help our community members connect with needed resources. Take care everyone.
