COVID-19 Fraud and Scams
Recognize, Reject and Report Scams

Hello Coronation Members. Today I would like to shift the focus a little bit and share a presentation on Frauds and Scams. I don't want anyone to get in a panic..... this is merely to educate you so you can be aware and learn how to avoid any potential no-gooders.

I had the pleasure of listening to this live webinar earlier this week entitled 'COVID-19 Fraud and Scams - How to Recognize, Reject and Report'. This was hosted by Elder Abuse Ontario, in partnership with the Ontario Securities Commission, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP)

Click the link below for the presentation to start. It is 1hr and 26mins long, so grab a blanket and your coffee, turn the volume up on your device and hunker down.
