Keep yourself safe in today’s rapidly changing world by learning about fraud tactics and how to outsmart fraudsters with the Rotary Club of Kingston and the Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL).
According to a release from the library, the seminars will provide a comprehensive understanding of fraud tactics and equip attendees with the expertise to thwart deceptive schemes targeting personal security and financial stability.
Two seminars will be held on this topic, and, in response to Kingstonist inquiries, KFPL said the content of each will be identical, only at different times and places.
The seminars will take place as follows:
- Thursday, Sept 21, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Branch. Register: https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/8512535
- Saturday, Oct. 28, 2023, at 2 p.m. at the Isabel Turner Branch. Register: https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/8512558
“Don’t be caught off guard by fraud—join the Rotary Club and KFPL in building a community that’s informed and prepared,” said Jake Miller, Adult Programming Librarian with KFPL. “By attending these sessions, you will be equipped to recognize fraudulent attempts from all angles, from identifying potential scams over the phone to recognizing deception in person and online. You can actively engage and ask questions, ensuring you leave with a strong foundation in fraud prevention strategies.”
