Fraud Awareness

KFPL Live: Fraud Awareness

Most mass marketing fraud — ransomware, online scams, phony calls from banks or the Canada Revenue Agency — is conducted by organized crime and funds terrorist activities. Victims seldom want to admit their losses. Tom Cheel from the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre outlines the most common types of mass marketing fraud and how to protect yourself.  Free to all adults and teens, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance online at events.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888. Wednesday, June 26, Isabel Turner branch, 2 p.m. and Thursday, June 27, Sydenham branch, 2 p.m. Both talks will be the same; of particular interest to seniors.
