TORONTO, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Canadians are reporting receiving telemarketing and automated telephone calls from an unknown organization, claiming to be AIR MILES Canada, informing them they have won a prize consisting of thousands of reward miles.
AIR MILES stresses to Canadians that this is not an AIR MILES initiative. We do not use automated messages to notify Collectors they have won reward miles.
We urge Canadians and our valued Collectors to protect themselves by never sharing personal information or account information, including account PIN, with anyone who should not have access to it.
Any suspicious telephone call that asks for personal information should be reported immediately to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501, or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Canadians should also visit the Anti-Fraud Centre website to learn more about what steps they should take to avoid becoming a victim of telemarketing/automated telephone schemes. More information is also available at: www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca
