Frauds and Scams
Each year Canadians lose an estimated $100 million dollars to a variety of frauds and scams. It can be devastating - financially and personally. So how do we protect ourselves? This workshop explores the common ways Canadians are defrauded and the things we can do to protect our possessions and ourselves. Learn how to guard against phishing and banking scams and avoid potential identity theft. This workshop will also outline what to do when a scam has taken place.
Outcome: Participants are able to better identify frauds and scams that they may encounter and understand tactics used by fraudsters to trick people out of their money, possessions or identity. Participants will be able to integrate strategies to protect themselves and their family- online and off line - from these various frauds and scams.
