“Investment fraud would never happen to me.” Fact: Bad investments aren’t always obvious.

barbershop 300x200.jpg

On Thursday, November 5, the ASC will take over barbershop Denim & Smith in Bankers Hall (downtown Calgary), rebranding it as the CheckFirst.ca Barbershop. We will be treating Calgarians to complimentary hair and beard trims (first come, first served) and entertainment from the Calgary-based a capella group, the Heebeee-jeebees, who have developed a custom jingle for the event.

We’re doing this as a media-friendly way of reminding Albertans to know that “not all scams are cut and dry.” Fraudulent investments are not always easy to recognize, and nearly one-third of Albertans believe they have been approached with a potential investment scam. Albertans are encouraged to use the ASC’s free tools and resources to learn about the “red flags” of investment fraud and how to protect themselves and their financial dreams from fraud.

November is Financial Literacy Month in Canada and the ASC is out to raise awareness about investment fraud and the importance of investor education so your investments aren’t “trimmed” away.

Details for CheckFirst Barbershop:

Thursday, November 5, 2015, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Denim and Smith (Banker’s Hall location)

Unit 144, Main Level

315-8th Avenue SW
