Note: as of May 23, 2018, the fake Facebook page has been taken down and the issue is resolved.
Dear valued partners,
We recently learned that there is a fake Facebook page impersonating Tides Canada at https://www.facebook.com/TidesCanadaFoundation. Please be aware of the fake page, and note that Tides Canada will only contact you from @tidescanada.org emails, and that our official social media accounts are:
- Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tidescanada
- Twitter: https://twitter.com/TidesCanada
- LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/tides-canada
- Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tidescanada
The security of your data is very important to us. We assure you that this activity on Facebook has not compromised the safety and integrity of Tides Canada’s internal data. However, if you do receive any suspicious communications from Tides Canada please do not respond and let us know as soon as possible.
We have reported the Facebook page to authorities and hope that it will be removed shortly. If you also report the fake page (https://www.facebook.com/TidesCanadaFoundation) as spam to Facebook it would be very helpful – thank you!
Living in a world of increasing ‘fake news’ and personal data abuse means that, now more than ever, we need to work together for accountability and integrity online.
We take great measures to ensure the privacy of your personal information and the trustworthiness of our online communications with our community. If you are unsure or have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-866-843-3722.
