For our January Community Meetings in both Milton and Burlington we will have speakers from the Halton Region Police Services Seniors’ Liaison Team. The focus of their presentation will be:
“How to protect yourself from Scams and Frauds and Seniors’ Safety”
As seniors we are a very vulnerable demographic. Scammers and Fraudsters know this and take every opportunity to prey on this vulnerability. In addition they are coming up with new scams all the time. And as a result seniors are duped out of 100’s of millions of dollars every year.
So….how can you be prepared? How can you protect yourself? What do you need to know? What do you need to be aware of? What are the latest schemes aimed at separating you from your money?
CARP Halton Chapter believes this is of vital importance to seniors and encourage you to come to one of these meetings. With all of the known scams and new ones coming along almost every day…..you simply cannot be over prepared on how to deal with them……
Our Milton meeting will be held on Wednesday January 11th, 2017 at the Seniors Activity Centre, 500 Childs Drive, Milton
Our Burlington meeting will be held on Tuesday January24th, 2017 at the Seniors Centre, 2285 New Street, Burlington.
Our meetings at both locations will be held in the evening. Doors will open at 6.30pm with the main meeting taking place between 7.00pm and 9.00pm. Coffee and tea will be available.
Both meetings will begin with a short welcoming address from our Chairperson, Tom Carrothers. Tom will also provide a brief update on your CARP Halton Chapter and CARP National activities.
This will be followed by our featured presentation.
