BCSC is stepping up its campaign to stop affinity fraud in the BC church community.

Valley Chaplain Consultants (nicknamed God’s Fraud Squad) is organizing presentations in churches across BC entitled “Telling the Truth…Exposing Affinity Fraud.” The first two are in the Fraser Valley:

  • Thursday, June 10, St Luke’s Catholic Church, 20285 Dewdney Trunk Road, Maple Ridge 3:00 and 7:00 pm
  • Wednesday, June 16, Trinity Lutheran Church, 3845 Gladwin Road, Abbotsford 10:30 am

We know from research and personal experience that investment fraud exploits relationships of trust and is devastating to families, friends and communities. We want people to begin to protect themselves, particularly in churches, where trust is an important component of spiritual well being.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you wish to have a presentation in your church or if you have any concerns that you wish to pass along to us. 1-800-373-6393 or email us at [email protected].
