BC Chamber issues new warning about Moving Scam
Telephone scammers posing as BC Chamber of Commerce employees continue to contact businesses across British Columbia, especially in the lower mainland, in an attempt to obtain private company information.
According to reports, the fraudulent calls come from people with an accent, asking if the company is moving offices, they also ask for a staff directory and further company information.
If you receive such a call, do not disclose any information to the caller - hang up immediately.
We do not track company movements. We might sometimes call to update or verify an address, but we do not and would not ask companies if they are planning to move.
If you are unsure of whether a call is legitimate, please contact our office at 604-683-0700.
