Hi! I’m Moshe Levy, of the Fraud Prevention Dept. of BCD Bank. I know it’s late but there seems to be a problem with your account. You may have been hacked and I need to verify your information.  Please give me your Teudat Zehut and account numbers.

Has this ever happened to you or someone you know? According to CBC, in 2021 58.4 million Americans lost $29.8 billion to phone scams alone.  And the con artists are becoming ever more sophisticated.

In this session, Melissa Dubinsky and Paulette Woolf highlighted the many types of scams to which one can fall prey through phone, email, Facebook and even WhatsApp.  They provided practical tips on how to recognize and avoid being fooled by these scams.
