Description

Canadian Anti – Fraud Centre and Prevention of Elder Abuse Network presents:

The Canadian Anti- Fraud Centre and the RCMP developed this presentation to discuss Mass Marketing Fraud, Identity Theft, Romance Crime, other scams and how to avoid being victimized. Nearly 80 percent of mass marketing fraud is conducted by organized crime groups and is currently the second most common criminal activity funding terrorist activities.

This presentation was developed by the CAFC Senior Unit Volunteer, Brock Godfrey, and RCMP Constable Jennifer George amongst others. It is delivered to seniors groups, service clubs and professional organizations across Southern Ontario.

The role of Prevention of Elder Abuse Network (PEAN) is to promote awareness, understanding of elder abuse issues, senior’s rights, requirements for safe and secure aging, and relevant services. PEAN promotes and maintains a collaborative, coordinated response to disclosures and allegations, identification and response to elder abuse.

BIO: BROCK GODFREY- The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, North Bay

Brock took early retirement in 1993 from the Ontario Ministry of Education, after 30 years in education. He joined PhoneBusters in 1997 as a Volunteer SeniorBuster. Now residing in the Barrie area, he does most, if not all, the presentations in Southern Ontario.

He has been instrumental in educating the public and raising awareness of illegal mass marketing fraud and identity theft: which is clearly the most successful and effective long-term strategy in reducing the number of fraud victims. He occasionally calls victims to assist them, but mainly gives presentations such as this to Service Clubs, seniors and Professional Groups, across all of Southern Ontario, and from Maui to Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.

Brock received the Superintendent’s Award of Distinction from the RCMP for his work in making Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre presentations about this topic.
