To align with government agencies in Canada and the United States that handle online fraud and scams, it's important to understand their goals, strategies, and the types of resources they offer. Here are the key agencies in both countries, along with suggestions for aligning your e-learning site, ScamStall, with their objectives:


  • Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC): The central agency in Canada that collects information and criminal intelligence on fraud and cybercrime. It's a partnership between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), and the Competition Bureau Canada.

  • Competition Bureau Canada: An independent law enforcement agency that ensures Canadian businesses and consumers prosper in a competitive and innovative marketplace, including tackling deceptive marketing practices.

United States:

  • Federal Trade Commission (FTC): The primary agency that collects scam reports and takes action against deceptive practices. The FTC also provides consumer education on avoiding scams and fraud.

  • Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3): A partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center, IC3 gives victims of cybercrime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism.

Aligning ScamStall with Agency Goals:

  1. Educational Content: Develop content that covers the types of scams these agencies frequently report on, using their public resources as a guide. Include tips for prevention, steps to take if scammed, and how to report scams.

  2. Current Trends and Statistics: Regularly update your site with the latest scam trends and statistics from these agencies to keep your audience informed and proactive.

  3. Reporting Mechanisms: Educate users on how and where to report scams, emphasizing the importance of reporting to agencies like the CAFC, FTC, or IC3.

  4. Collaborative Campaigns: Consider reaching out to these agencies to explore potential collaborative educational campaigns or initiatives that can benefit both parties and the public.

  5. Use of Official Resources: Incorporate or reference official guides, videos, and other resources from these agencies into your content to add credibility and depth.

  6. Compliance and Recommendations: Ensure your content complies with the recommendations and guidelines provided by these agencies. This not only boosts your credibility but also ensures you're providing valuable and accurate information.

  7. Guest Contributions: Invite experts from these agencies to contribute guest articles, webinars, or interviews to share their insights directly with your audience.

  8. Interactive Learning Modules: Create modules that simulate scam scenarios based on real cases highlighted by these agencies, providing users with hands-on experience in identifying and avoiding scams.

  9. Feedback Loop: Offer a mechanism for users to share their experiences and feedback on scams, which could be valuable for both your platform's improvement and potential sharing with these agencies.

  10. Accessibility and Outreach: Make sure your content is accessible to a wide audience, including seniors and non-English speakers, to align with the agencies' goals of widespread consumer education.

By aligning ScamStall's content and objectives with those of governmental anti-fraud agencies, you not only increase the site's value and credibility but also contribute to a broader effort against online fraud and scams.
