THE ALBERTA SECURITIES COMMISSION
Kajillionaire was created to educate Albertans about investment fraud.
The game takes players on a journey through the world of investment fraud – where no one wins. Throughout the game, players will learn about the red flags of investment fraud and different types of scams commonly presented to Albertans. This educational tool includes factors behind decision making, recreating scenarios that real victims of investment fraud have experienced.
Developed as an educational tool, Kajillionaire is not really for sale. 1 in 4 Albertans who think they may have fallen for fraud report losing between $5,000 and $25,000. To draw attention to this, we made the game ‘price’ $25,000. In reality, some people lose less. Some people lose much, much more – in terms of money, trust in others and optimism about the future. The impact is still devastating. Just like in Kajillionaire, when you enter the world of fraud – everyone loses. Kajillionaire can be played by Albertans at board game cafes throughout the province.
