Red Flags to Check A Website For

Fortunately, even the most sophisticated websites touting fraudulent investments often have red flags. Make sure to look closely at the site for warning signs like these:

  • The company or person is not registered with the ASC or with another Canadian securities regulator.
  • The company description is vague, with little to no information about the management team.
  • Besides the website, there’s no information available on the Internet about the company.
  • There are grammatical and spelling errors.
  • The contact information is not accurate.
  • The company is located overseas.
