Avoiding Fraud

There are some basic precautions you can take to prevent becoming a victim of fraud, buying an item that may be stolen, or selling an item to an individual not legally licensed to own said item:

1. Obtain and confirm the PAL number, address, phone number, and place of birth of any potential purchaser or seller with the RCMP to avoid being defrauded, or selling to an unlicensed individual.

2. Obtain and confirm all firearm serial numbers prior to purchase, and confirm they are not stolen by using the online CPIC database lookup located here.

3. Be cautious of people who request payment via money order or bank transfer, especially overseas sellers or purchasers.

4. Never share personal banking or financial information online, such as credit card number, PayPal logins, or bank account numbers.
