Now Updated: Scams to Avoid

April 28, 2017

One of our more popular titles, Scams to Avoid, has been fully updated for 2017 and is now available in multiple formats. This publication helps people spot and guard against scams that try to trick them out of their money.

Covering 15 of the most common scams that affect British Columbians, Scams to Avoid also explains the growing problem of identity theft and describes the steps to take if you have been the victim of a scam.

What’s new in this update

Highlights of the new update include:

  • New content. New sections on romance scams, charity scams, and expanded coverage of online and computer scams.
  • More practical guidance. More tips and step-by-step guidance on how to avoid scams and what to do if you have been scammed.
  • A fresh new look. The print version features a new look for People’s Law School booklets and a more readable font and layout.

Choose the format that works best for your needs

Scams to Avoid is available in multiple formats, online and in print. A new wikibook version can be accessed online and is “responsive” to the device you’re using, so that it is optimized for that device (such as mobile). A new EPUB version offers a format that is optimized for reading on a tablet or e-reader.

Meanwhile, this popular title continues to be available as a printed booklet. If you wish to order multiple copies of the print booklet, you can do so from Crown Publications.
