Contrary to what most of us would like to believe, door-to-door scammers are still active in our communities. Door-to-door scams are often targeted at elderly and vulnerable people, who can be easily pressured into signing sales agreements. Common scams include false claims about the quality of municipal drinking water and next-day installation of various water treatment systems under the guise of a government program. These water treatment scams also falsely promise consumers rebates for their water bills or that the government will pay for the installation of new equipment. Victims instead face increasing hydro bills and liens registered against their property for non-payment.
The immediate thoughts when some people are arrested and charged with impaired driving are usually “So much for a clean driving record”, “Shouldn’t be too bad, no one was hurt” or even “It’s okay, I’ll just have to drive with an interlock device installed for a while”. The truth of the matter in Canada is that impaired driving offenses are much more than mere traffic offenses; they are crimes punishable under the Criminal Code and carry very serious repercussions upon conviction.
