How do I know if an Interac e-Transfer email or text I receive is real or spam?

Only click on the links in Interac notifications from senders you know and requests you were expecting. When using the Request Money feature, Interac does provide the name of individuals and businesses for Request Money transfers in the notifications which can help you determine if the notification is legitimate.

If you weren’t expecting that particular requestor to request funds from you, report it as spam. You can report spam by calling our Member Services Centre or by sending an email to
