They are relentless.

They send the emails out by the hundreds of thousands.

Their costs are minimal.

They need one of two things – people with more greed than common sense or people who don’t fully understand internet technology and what happens when they click on a link.

This is particularly difficult for seniors who can remember the day when they had phones run by a local operator who made the connections.

CIBC notice June 2014

If you click on that box your problems will have just begun.

It means being vigilant – if it doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t and if you don’t understand what you are being asked to do – then don’t do it.  And if it sounds too good to be true – then it isn’t true.

Set out below is the most recent scam.  We do not bank with CIBC.  How the fraud artists got our email address is beyond me – it’s not hard to get.  That address will get bundled with millions of others and sold to someone who will then use that list to send out millions of email – all they need is one and they make more money with that person than they make in a year.

Some people have been ruined because they clicked on what they saw as a great opportunity.  For the fraud artist it was a great opportunity.
