Fighting Fraud with the OPP

February 21 @ 6:30 pm

Free

The focus of the FIGHTfraud presentation is to promote fraud prevention through community engagement and public education. It builds awareness of frauds that threaten the safety and security of Ontario seniors, and educates Ontario seniors to recognize, reject and report fraud. One of the important messages of the presentation is to slow down—to take time to think about a demand for money or personal information before complying. The presentation highlights a campaign from the United Kingdom called Take Five which also promotes this message. In addition to the Take Five strategy, the presentation will cover specific fraud scams that are most common, specifically romance fraud, emergency fraud, CRA fraud, bank investigator fraud and spoofing.
