Fraud Prevention Month
WHERAS, fraud takes many shapes and forms; one of the frauds that the Alberta Fraud Prevention Committee is focusing on is romance frauds that target senior citizens; and
WHERAS, the approach of those criminals who are intent on stealing money from seniors is often to establish a personal bond with the intended victim; and
WHERAS, citizens who meet someone either on-line, or over the phone, must be wary of any and all romantic overtures that are extended by strangers;
NOW THEREFORE, I, Gale Katchur as Mayor of the City of Fort Saskatchewan and on behalf of City Council, hereby proclaim March 2015 as ROMANCE SCAM AWARENESS MONTH in Fort Saskatchewan.
