Trending Scams, Criminals Taking Advantage

Thursday, October 6th, 2:00-3:00pm

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 protect yourself from becoming a victim is to learn about the most recent and trending scams.
