I'm just suggesting that on a per-capita basis fraud is probably the same the world over.
Many years ago I worked with non-profit organizations that would not ship containers of agricultural tools to a certain area in the world that was in dire need of it because the material would never make it to its intended destination. That was pre-ecommerce days. Fraud is everywhere. Canada has its fair share of crooks not unlike anywhere else in the world. But it's not widespread. Your 2 references probably just had all the luck that's all.
