There are many scams targeting Canadians, with new ones invented every day. Scams can come in different forms – mail, text messages, emails, telephone calls and more.
It has come to our attention that some people are receiving unsolicited mail appearing to be from Family Insurance. The letter states that the recipient has won a cash lottery prize and that to claim the prize the recipient must cash the enclosed cheque and forward the funds as specified in the letter. Please note that this is a scam and the cheque is fraudulent.
If you have received one of these letters, please:
- do not contact or engage with the organizers of this scam,
- do not cash any cheques that appear to come from Family Insurance Solutions Inc., and
- do not forward any funds to anyone
If you are in doubt, please contact us directly to verify whether the cheque is valid.
Family Insurance has taken action to stop this scam and the interruption into your privacy. The actions by the organizers of this scam are unacceptable and are by no means associated with our company.
