Libby Znaimer is joined by Jeff Thomson, a Senior RCMP Intelligence Analyst with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and Yaniv Or, Vice President of Technology and Data at ZoomerMedia Limited.
Phone scams across the country do not discriminate against anyone. All Canadians are vulnerable and especially senior citizens. We’ve all heard the horror stories. This is nothing new.
Just last week, authorities in India shut down a phone scam centre that was targeting Canadians by duping them into handing over money in a scheme that involved their Social Insurance Number information. In that case, 32 people were arrested.
Despite these crackdowns, this type of criminal activity persists. Libby and experts discuss what you can do to better protect yourself from being targeted.
