Consumers and businesses in Saskatchewan have recently been targeted by unlicensed persons posing as collection agencies.
Collection Agents are required to be licensed to operate in Saskatchewan under The Collection Agents Act. Before making any payments, or giving any personal information, consumers should ask for the license number of the Collection Agency and confirm the validity on FCAA411, http://www.fcaa.gov.sk.ca/fcaa411/.
If you believe you have been a victim of fraud, please contact the RCMP or the Consumer Anti-Fraud Centre.
If you have been contacted by an unlicensed collection agent, you should contact the Consumer Protection Division by email at email@example.com or by phone at 306-787-5550 or Toll Free at 1-877-880-5550.
