Bankruptcy Abuse and Fraud

“Bankruptcy Abuse and Fraud” Section Updated by the OSB

Bankruptcy Abuse and FraudThe Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy is responsible for overseeing insolvencies across Canada and has a section on Bankruptcy Abuse and Fraud.

One of the biggest reasons for the Canadian insolvency laws is to allow unfortunate individuals a chance for a new financial start, without being weighed down by prior debts.

In some cases, however, people want to know how to protect their belongings from being seized when going bankrupt and sold to have the proceeds distributed to the creditors.

Some people consider if they could pay a family member instead of paying off a credit card bill before declaring bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Abuse and Fraud Examples

Our word of advice to these people: Don’t try this!

This would be considered a preference payment, which is not allowed and would be considered Bankruptcy Abuse and Fraud.

Your bankruptcy trustee will have the power to recover these payments and they will then be sold and not included in the bankruptcy.

In addition, you will face serious penalties in court, as the trustee will be required by their professional ethics to report these activities.

You are not allowed to take advantage of the insolvency laws in any way.

The Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy has updated its “Bankruptcy Abuse and Fraud” web section, which you can view at this link.

I was feeling overwhelmed by my credit debt, constantly receiving calls and letters from debt collectors, which caused a great deal of stress. It seemed like there was no way out of this situation. However, I discovered Bankruptcy Canada while listening to my local talk radio station. This organization proved to be friendly, empathetic, knowledgeable, and professional, with extensive experience in their field.

During our initial meeting, they took the time to understand my debt and financial circumstances. They explained the various options available to me and helped create a personalized plan that would be most beneficial for my situation. With their assistance, I was able to avoid declaring bankruptcy by presenting a consumer proposal to my creditors. Fortunately, my proposal was accepted, and I am extremely relieved to finally be free of debt, all thanks to BankruptcyCanada.
