Isabel Turner Branch

Cataraqui Room

Every week we hear about a new form of fraud, usually spread by phone or email: ransomware, extortion, phony Canada Revenue Agency or bank calls, and more. Nearly 80% of mass marketing fraud is

conducted by organized crime and it's currently the second most common criminal activity funding terrorist activities.  However, most mass marketing fraud is never reported.  Often the victims are too embarrassed to admit their losses.  But silence can allow the fraud to continue. 

We are delighted to offer a presentation on Fraud Awareness by Tom Cheel from the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC).  Jointly managed by the RCMP, Competition Bureau, and the OPP, the CAFC is the central agency in Canada which collects information and criminal intelligence on such matters as mass marketing fraud (eg telemarketing), advance fee fraud (eg West African letters), Internet fraud and identification theft complaints.  In his presentation Tom will outline the most common types of fraud and how you can protect yourself. This information will be of particular use to seniors.

This program requires free registration.  It will be repeated at 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 27 at the Sydenham Branch; please register at http://url.ie/145z9/ for that session.
