RCMP Romance Scam Bulletin: February 2018
A Romance Scam involves any individual with false romantic intentions toward a victim in order to gain their trust and affection for the purpose of obtaining the victim’s money or access to their bank accounts or credit cards. In some cases, the suspect will even attempt to get the victim to commit fraud on their behalf – as a money mule (accepting, then transferring money or goods) often unknowingly. Most romance scams begin via social media sites or online dating sites.

Physical activity is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your physical and mental health and quality of life as you get older. Walking, stretching, and keep your muscles in good condition will help you maintain your independence.
Independent living depends on being able to do the things you want to do when you want to do them. To stay independent, you need to be able to reach, bend, lift, carry and move around easily. Staying physically active will help you to keep moving and stay strong.
