Fraud Fighter Series: Scam-Proof Your Life
This is the third in a 3-part educational series designed to inform and educate people on fraud prevention.
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. Therefore, to fight fraud consumers and professionals need to understand how scams work so we can prevent them before they happen.
The presentation is based on analysis of undercover FBI recordings of con-artists in action, consumer protection laws and reports from crime victims. The discussion can include a variety of topics depending on the audience’s interest: scams, identity theft, credit card fraud, cyber security 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 and those who may be more vulnerable like young people and some elders.
