The Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (CCCS) has seen an increase in COVID-19 phishing campaigns, some of which impersonate health organizations or Government of Canada websites such as Canada Revenue Agency and the Public Health Agency of Canada. CCCS has worked with industry to take down over 2000 fraudulent websites. Please note that the Government of Canada never uses text messages or instant messaging such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp to communicate with Canadians. Highly publicized events such as this pandemic can make individuals and organizations the target of email, telephone and cyber scams. If an individual believes they have encountered a scam message, they are encouraged to report the incident to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888495-8501
