Inheritance scam involving use of Intact Insurance’s logo
We would like to warn consumers about an inheritance scam involving the use of Intact Insurance’s name and logo.
Letters designed to look like they have come from a bank but delivered in an Intact Insurance pre-paid envelope are being circulated. The letters typically present recipients with the opportunity to become the beneficiary of a large amount of inheritance funds.
These letters did not originate from Intact Insurance and are part of an inheritance scam. If you receive correspondence about an inheritance-related matter that is delivered in an Intact Insurance envelope, you should report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
It has come to Intact’s attention that fraudulent letters and cheques bearing the name and logo of Canadian financial institutions are being sent to consumers as part of a mystery shopper assignment.
The scam typically involves asking the recipient to deposit a cheque, keep $400 in their account as payment and wire a sum of money to another person’s account. However, the cheque will not clear and the recipient will not be able to recover the sum transferred.
Please note that Intact does not send out letters of such nature or cheques to consumers for such programs.
If you make payments to Intact online, here are a few tips to bear in mind:
- Protect your credit cards and your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Do not share your PIN with anyone.
- Do not provide your credit card number over the telephone unless you initiated the call yourself or have validated who you’re talking to within the company.
- Check your account statements as soon as they arrive to ensure all transactions and charges are correct. Report any discrepancies
Always adopt good online practices such as clearing your browser history and be cautious. Check out any caller by requesting written information, a call back number and references.

If that's the case, you probably have to get covered via your country of residence. Quebecers, for example, are covered by Quebec's national healthcare while traveling or studying abroad.
