Law enforcement personnel will tackle fraud prevention at a webinar on Tuesday, Jan 19.

Dufferin County OPP officers will host a virtual lunch and learn session at noon on how to recognize fraud, how to protect yourself and loved ones from becoming victims, how COVID-19 has given criminals a new way to exploit victims and the most popular scams.

“Knowledge is power. All consumers can take basic steps to better protect themselves from becoming a victim of fraud,” states a news release.

Provincial Const. Lisa Cruz and Erin Fraser of the Serious Fraud Office and Jeff Thomson of the Canadian-Anti-Fraud Centre will lead the discussion.
