March is Fraud Prevention Month!
Do you know what it means to be an informed investor?
We want Albertans to be empowered to make informed and suitable investment decisions, so we created CheckFirst.ca, an investor-oriented website designed to increase their financial literacy.
And there are some important steps to take before investing, not only to ensure an investment is right for you - but also to ensure you spot and avoid investment fraud.
CheckFirst.ca provides a wide variety of unbiased, informative educational resources to help you increase your financial literacy:
Checkfirst has a comprehensive Investor Protection section with information to help Albertans learn ways to recognize and avoid investment fraud, protecting themselves and their hard-earned money.
If you're thinking of making an investment, ensure you know the red flags of investment fraud and check the registration of the person/company offering you the investment.
