The Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) is telling consumers to be on the alert for a mail scam that is using the Aviva Canada logo, address and name.
Designed to look like they have come from a law firm in Spain, the letters ask recipients to contact the author for more details. The letters are currently circulating with the promise of a large payout from an estate sharing the same last name as the addressee, FSCO reports in an advisory.
Aviva Canada has confirmed it has no connection to this proposal or any similar transactions, and consumers are advised this type of scenario is commonly involved in an advance fee fraud.
Any consumer receiving such correspondence is asked to contact the Aviva ombudsman at [email protected] and to forward the correspondence to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
