Police and Hospital officials in Chatham-Kent cautioned the public this morning about automated calls inviting people to book a Covid-19 Vaccination appointment in a fraudulent effort to gather their personal information. Since it’s happening in Chatham-Kent, similar calls to those living in Windsor-Essex can’t be far behind, if they’re not already taking place.
Vaccinations ARE NOT being booked right now for the general public, and health officials would not be using automated messages to gather private personal information over the phone. People are reminded to NEVER share personal information over the phone with individuals and groups whose identity you cannot verify 100%… especially when you did not initiate the contact.
What, you might wonder, does this have to do with insurance? Absolutely nothing. But it does have a lot to do with your security and privacy. And we don’t need to be servicing your insurance needs to pass on some useful information that looks out for that.
Have a great weekend everyone, and be careful who you share your personal information with. AT DPM Insurance Group our motto is: “Your Security – Our Responsibility”.
