Ottawa, November 25, 2011 - The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) warns all Canadians to beware of telephone calls, mail, email and websites that claim to be from FCAC. FCAC does not initiate contact with consumers.
With educational materials and interactive tools, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) provides objective information about financial products and services to help Canadians increase their financial knowledge and confidence in managing their personal finances. FCAC informs consumers about their rights and responsibilities when dealing with banks and federally regulated trust, loan and insurance companies. FCAC also makes sure that federally regulated financial institutions, payment card network operators and external complaints bodies comply with legislation and industry commitments intended to protect consumers.
