FAQ 1805:

Suspicious/fraudulent inquiries

Over the years we have received many concerned emails and calls from you after having received suspicious requests, and we are often asked for guidance. At BBCanada.com we cannot advise if any email or request is legitimate, but we can recommend that you contact your Association or local authorities should you receive anything that seems fraudulent in nature.

Recently you have had concerns about money orders in particular. According to the Canada Post, you can verify the validity of a money order you receive by calling 1-800-563-0444.

Keep in mind, a money order is similar to a cheque in that you are responsible for it should it not prove to be valid.

For more information on money orders, please visit the Canada Post website:

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the general warning signs of fraud, and be sure to keep yourself informed and use your common sense.
