Trending Scams, Criminals Taking Advantage- January 26: 10:00-11:00am | March 22: 9:30-10:30am
Scammers use fear and intimidation to steal our money and get our personal information by pretending to be government officials, health care organizations or family members in distress. Knowing not to click on email links, placing privacy controls on your devices and monitoring your accounts are a few helpful prevention tools. One of the best ways to keep on top of trending scams is to find out what others have encountered. If you have copies of fraudulent emails or letters or just have a situation to share, bring them with you and we can learn from one another! We hope you can join us to hear about trending scams and share your stories!
