Report a Threat to National Security

Fraudulent emails and phone calls - Protect yourself!

If you receive a phone call or an on-line pop-up message claiming to be from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canadian Security Intelligence Service or Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre asking to either give access to your computer, or pay a certain amount of money to unlock your computer or your phone, please be aware that it is a scam. These messages or calls are not from the RCMP, CSIS or other government of Canada representatives.

Do not give remote access to your computer in response to an unsolicited call or message. 

We strongly encourage Canadians to report such instances of fraud to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by phone 1-888-495-8501 or via their website at
