March 28, 2016 - It has come to our attention that a company posing as a third-party contractor of SGI CANADA is contacting targeted consumers to become "mystery shoppers" on our behalf.
SGI CANADA IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH THIS COMPANY.
They promise consumers financial compensation in return for their services and ask for personal information to be confirmed and given, This is a scam to obtain the consumer's information.
The target receives a letter, along with a very realistic-looking cheque. When they try to cash the cheque, it bounces, but the con artists already have their information.
