common passwords canada

On Monday, the BC Securities Commission (BCSC) issued a statement warning the public to exercise extreme caution about unsolicited phone calls promoting an investment in a B.C.-based technology company.

The BCSC say that they recently learned that several vulnerable seniors in B.C. have been targeted. Someone using high-pressure sales tactics would be calling them. This includes daily phone calls, to encourage them to buy shares in CannaOne Technologies Inc.


“The caller, whose number appears on caller identification as coming from a 646 area code (New York), instructs people to buy a certain number of shares at a certain price, and tells them not to sell until they receive a follow-up phone call” reads their website.

If you have received an unsolicited phone call about purchasing CannaOne or any other investment, please contact the BCSC Inquiries line at 604-899-6854 or 1-800-373-6393.
