It is estimated that approximately one million Canadians are victims of mass marketing fraud and identity theft in Canada each year, at a cost of $10 billion.* While there are no typical descriptors for a fraud victim—it can happen to anyone—there are certainly steps that people can take to help protect themselves from fraud and identity theft.
EKC’s eSwitch® service is a program that provides members with a convenient and hassle-free service to transfer their pre-authorized transactions and/or their balance of account from other financial institutions to East Kootenay Community Credit Union.
