/R E P E A T -- Telemarketing/Automated Telephone Scheme Warning To AIR MILES Collectors/

TORONTO, Jan. 24 /CNW/ - Canadians are reporting receiving telemarketing and automated telephone calls from an unknown organization informing them they have won a prize consisting of between 10,000 and 100,000 reward miles. Consumers are then prompted to press "1" and are subsequently transferred to an operator who asks for personal and credit card information.

This is not an AIR MILES initiative. We do not use an automated message to notify Collectors they have won reward miles.

We urge Canadians to protect themselves by never sharing personal information or account information with anyone who should not have access to it.

Any suspicious telephone call when personal information is asked for should be reported immediately to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Task Force at 1-888-495-8501 or by e-mail at: info@antifraudcentre.ca

More information is also available at: www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca Canadians should also visit the Anti-Fraud Task Force website to learn more about what steps they should take to avoid becoming a victim of telemarketing/automated telephone schemes.
