Police Chief Glenn De Caire addressed Chamber Members and guests at a luncheon meeting held at the Innsville Restaurant, March 9th.
The Chief shared information we should use to reduce the risk of fraud through credit/debit card, internet and personal data theft. The main message was, DO NOT give out any personal or banking information to anyone over the telephone. Emails requesting personal information should also be disregarded. Most importantly, if you find a situation that seems suspicious, report it to the police. We were also reminded not to carry our Social Security cards and only to carry credit cards that we would frequently use. Equally important it to pay close attention to monthly bank and credit card statements.
Members attending were also given an opportunity to ask a variety of questions. It was a very informative and interesting event enjoyed by all.
