Beware – Scammers asking for fees on behalf of CATSA
Protect yourself against fraud! People claiming to work for or on behalf of CATSA are sending invoices to victims asking for payments. CATSA never requests payments from individuals seeking to come to Canada. This is a scam.
At airport security checkpoints across the country, security screening of passengers and their belongings is conducted by CATSA’s screening officers prior to their entry into the secure area of an airport.
Screening officers use a variety of screening technologies and procedures to prevent passengers from carrying prohibited items beyond the screening checkpoint.
