Our spring luncheon will be held on Thursday, March 19th and we are pleased to welcome Arnie Bigbee, who serves as a volunteer Fraud Fighter with the AARP Fraud Watch Network, as our speaker. Arnie will educate us about fraud, scams and identity theft.
Financial crimes including scams, identity theft, and consumer fraud are the most frequently attempted crimes every day in the United States. Millions of Americans are losing billions of dollars to new scams and still others that may seem like the “oldest trick in the book.” Technology has made it easier for criminals to access personal information and financial accounts from anywhere in the world. These criminals know how to “cover their tracks” and most investigations lead to dead ends, meaning the best way to prevent these crimes is for consumers and professionals to understand how they work.
The presentation is based on an analysis of undercover FBI recordings of con artists in action, consumer protection laws and reports from crime victims. Bring any questions you may have about scams, identity theft, credit card fraud, cybersecurity and online safety, investment fraud, consumer protections, abuse within families and more. Information is the best tool to help us all protect our own savings.
