Statistics Canada has brought to our attention a phishing scam asking new participants to “expand the Uniform Crime Reporting” survey. The scammer sent out the email pretending to be from the CRDCN and McMaster University. If you receive such an email asking you to "be a respondent in the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey", DO NOT OPEN IT – delete it immediately. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
