MARCH IS FRAUD PREVENTION MONTH

March 2018 marks the 14th Anniversary of Fraud Prevention Month in Canada

Fraud Prevention Month is a month-long crime prevention initiative aimed at educating and informing consumers and communities on how to recognize, report and stop fraud.

Across Alberta, interested police and law enforcement agencies, and community and consumer groups form the Alberta Fraud Prevention Month committee to plan events and spread key messages to the public on how to better protect themselves.

To get a “jump start” on the Fraud Prevention Month 2018 campaign, we would like to hear from victims who are willing to share their personal story that involves some sort of fraud – online scams, romance scams to renovation scams.

Julie Matthews of Service Alberta will be co-chairing the 2018 campaign and is currently seeking victims and powerful stories relating to fraud. If you wish to share your story please contact Julie @ Julie.matthews@gov.ab.ca or 780 641 9929.
