March is Fraud Prevention Month for Canadians to Recognize, Reject and Report Fraud. Reduce fraud by increasing fraud awareness.

This evening, at 8 pm, we will be joined by members of the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre to answer questions regarding fake endorsements and online purchase scams. Members of the public can follow Toronto Police Service Financial Crimes (@TPSFCU), Detective Gail Regan (@ReganFCU), Detective Constable Diane Kelly (@DKellyFCU) and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (@Canantifraud), on Twitter.

To follow #fraudchat, members of the public simply need to log on to Twitter from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST and follow the #Fraudchat hashtag. An application such as Tweetdeck, which allows users to separately view tweets containing this hashtag, is also helpful in following the chat.
