Fight­ing Fraud

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE -

WithFraud Preven­tion Month just about to end, the Sureté du Que­bec has some im­por­tant tips for peo­ple to fol­low: shred all re­ceipts, cheques, pre-ap­proved credit ap­pli­ca­tions, and old rev­enue dec­la­ra­tion forms that you don’t need any­more; never di­vulge per­sonal in­for­ma­tion about fi­nances, bank ac­counts, credit cards, so­cial in­sur­ance num­bers or driver’s li­censes; ver­ify your credit file ev­ery year and alert au­thor­i­ties im­me­di­ately if you see a prob­lem.

Many ac­tiv­i­ties have taken place through­out the month, fin­ish­ing with a sched­ule of doc­u­ment shred­ding events, that ev­ery­one can bring their per­sonal doc­u­ments to, tak­ing place around the re­gion. Bring your doc­u­ments to: Coat­i­cook SQ, March 28th, 3:00 to 4:00 pm; Ayer’s Cliff town hall, March 30th, 1:00 to 2:00 pm; March 30th, Bolton East, 3:00 to 4:00 pm; Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC SQ, March 31st, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
