It has come to Jevco’s attention that fraudulent letters and cheques bearing the name and logo of Canadian financial institutions are being sent to consumers as part of a mystery shopper assignment.
The scam typically involves asking the recipient to deposit a cheque, keep $400 in their account as payment and wire a sum of money to another person’s account. However, the cheque will not clear and the recipient will not be able to recover the sum transferred.
Please note that Jevco does not send out letters of such nature or cheques to consumers for such programs.
If you have questions regarding the authenticity of any correspondence or cheques sent by Jevco, please contact your broker or email: FraudTips@intact.net.
If you have received such a letter and cheque, please report it to your local police agency and send a copy of your police report to Jevco at FraudTips@intact.net.
