A free fraud awareness workshop is being held March 30, sponsored by White Rock Community Policing, White Rock RCMP and the Semiahmoo Community Safety Society.
In his annual report to council recently, White rock RCMP Staff Sgt. Kale Pauls revealed that White Rock residents – many of them seniors – were bilked of more than $1 million dollars by fraudsters in 2022.
The upcoming workshop is described as an “interactive seminar” that will “will provide you with information on how to protect yourself from the most current scams as well as focus on generic examples of different types of frauds and specific things you can do to reduce the chance of becoming a victim.”
The workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon at White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave. on Thursday, March 30.
