Warning : online scam using OPC’s official symbol

There is a fraudulent email in circulation that claims to be from Commissioner Daniel Therrien and displays our Office’s official symbol. It claims to be from an organization calling itself the ‘Brigade Fédérale’. The email informs the recipient that they could be facing criminal charges and demands a response within 72 hours to avoid prosecution.

As with all phishing emails, you are advised to not provide any of the information requested nor to click on any links. We urge you to report the email to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (RCMP) given the potential of identity theft, and read the information on protecting yourself from scams and fraud.

For additional tips for preventing identity theft, please consult our page entitled identity theft and you.
