RCC ALERT: Be on the lookout for gift card scams
Retailers need to be on the lookout for potential gift card scams. Before selling gift cards, your teams should make sure the packaging is intact and that the PIN is not exposed. If a tampered card is spotted, it should NOT be sold. Gift card fraud should be reported to your local police agency, or if you believe you have been victimized, to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
