What We Do

The CARP ABCs of Fraud is an innovative and informative program that helps people  become “tough targets” by “getting the facts on fraud”!


Canadians lose millions of dollars every year to consumer frauds and scams such as illegal telemarketing; bogus charities; identity theft and more…

CARP  delivers this innovative consumer fraud education and prevention program.

Twenty volunteers were recruited and trained to deliver a free one-hour interactive presentation to groups, providing information and tips on identifying and preventing consumer fraud victimization. Originally presented  to Seniors groups,  volunteers now present the ABCs of Fraud awareness program to a variety of groups, organizations and companies across Nova Scotia.The demand for information on consumer fraud is extremely high. According to local police services, since presentations began, reports of attempted and unsuccessful scams have increased. They attribute part of that success to the ABCs of Fraud education program.

Speakers use a variety of teaching methods to present information on fraud beginning with role-plays that show an often surprised  audience how easy it is to be caught by scammers and fraudsters.  The presenters also include knowledge assessment quizzes, lectures and handout materials. Presenters also provide an open forum for questions and discussion.

ABCs of Fraud provides information not readily available. Peer teaching, long considered one of the most effective teaching tools for all age groups, provides the interactive experience adults need to learn new and valuable information. By providing a proactive response to consumer fraud, ABCs of Fraud speakers help to reduce the financial, emotional and physical decline, which often accompany the defrauding of an individual.
