Warning: Fraudulent use of CCIC name and identity

 

Ottawa, January 7, 2020 – CCIC advises the public that it has become aware of a fraudulent use of its name and image.  CCIC has become aware of a website using replicated content from our real site to solicit payments for fake scholarships and collect payments from unsuspecting applicants. This misrepresentation is a scam.

 

We seek to alert our partners and followers, and indeed all visitors to our website, that CCIC will continue to be vigilant and vocal in calling out such fraudulent activity. We are taking appropriate measures to request that this fake website be taken down.
