(English with Japanese Description)
Our online sessions (Zoom) of this month is your safety. Many of your requests are bringing back an amazing Toronto Police Services constable again – to learn about Frauds! Bit longer version than last time, in English with Japanese Interpreter.
What is this session about?
Have you received emails or calls telling you that you won a lottery, or that you have an outstanding tax payment?
You may think these are well-known tricks and you would not fall for these scams. But the world of frauds is deep and serious, the tricks have become more sophisticated to the point that you only realize after you were tricked. Emails have been looking just like the ones you regularly receive from your local pharmacy chain, or the callers threaten to arrest you if you don’t listen.
This year so far in Canada (as of July 31, 2021), more than 46,000 cases has been reported, and 32,690 individuals have become victims of fraud with total $130M (Canadian Anti-fraud Centre, Aug 2021). You can even browse more than 70 different types of scam tricks on the CAFC website, and the list is just part of everything that’s been happening. Anyone can be targeted and victimized – we have to smart up ourselves as the scammers are always trying to find better ways to trick us.
Come and join us to learn about some of the popular frauds from Toronto Police Services, to protect yourself and people around you, and what to do when you encounter a fraud or are victimized.
※This seminar is held in English (with Japanese Interpreter)
