The Fallbrook Citizens’ Crime Prevention Committee (FCCPC) would like to express our thanks for all the community teamwork to help notify coworkers, neighbors and friends about the crime prevention meeting on October 27 at Zion Lutheran Church. The positive turnout was a reflection of your hard work.
Our speakers addressed Internet crime, identity theft, exploitation of children by electronic means and Internet safety for children.
The audience did not want to leave that night because Joe Maggio, supervisor for CATCH (Computer & Technology Crimes High-Tech Response Team), and Sgt. Chuck Arnold, ICAC (Internet Crime Against Children), San Diego Police Department, had valuable updated information on how to protect our children, family and community.
If you missed the meeting and have experienced any kind of Internet crime against children or crimes against you regarding identity theft, scams or frauds on the computer, call local law enforcement and file a report.
On October 31 there was a huge phishing scheme in our area that looked like a legitimate request from your Yahoo account and, if you replied, it would have created a total confiscation of your account. I alerted Joe Maggio, San Diego County District Attorney investigator, right away and they are pursing the cyber criminals.
With much gratitude for your help to reach the four corners of our communities.
