The Fraud Monitor is a service of the UIA and is intended to provide information only about possible fraudulent activity and scams. We are not able to provide advice to, or take action on behalf of recipients of such activities. We are not the internet police or an enforcement agency. If you are the victim of fraud then local resources are best. Always use caution when responding to or acting on unsolicited requests.

Le Moniteur des Fraudes est un service de l'UAI dont le but est seulement d'informer au sujet d'éventuelles activités frauduleuses et d'escroqueries. Nous n'avons pas la capacité de fournir un avis ou de mener une action pour les destinataires de ces fraudes. Nous ne sommes ni la police ni une agence traquant ces fraudeurs. Si toutefois vous êtes victime de fraude, les instances locales seront plus aptes à vous venir en aide. Faites preuve de prudence lorsque vous réagissez en réponse à des requêtes non sollicitées.
