Tuesday, September 17 at 7 PM: Fraud Watch #1
The Jeudevine Library will be presenting a series of three programs presented by Bill April from AARP to help inform people of a growing and dangerous problem of fraud in the U.S. The first program will be held on Tuesday, September 17 at 7 PM on Weapons of Frau, an overview of the leading scams, techniques of con artists, and discussion of the steps to take to avoid victimization. This is the AARP’s “Flagship” presentation which has been presented most frequently. While addressing a wide range of issues, it only lightly covers computer/cyber scams. It does cover the people who are behind this activity and how they work.
This program will be followed by Fraud, Scams, and Con Artists: Coming to a Computer Near You on Oct. 15 and Identity Theft on Nov. 12. Fraud and scams are a growing problem in the US. Come find out how you can spot them at these programs. There will be refreshments. The AARP has lot of information on their website: https://www.aarp.org/money/scams-fraud/. For more information about the program call the library at 472-5948.
